We are embarking on a new phase of development to focus on people who want to uncover their creativity within a natural environment.

We have recently purchased 4.5 acres of woodland and fields near the Woodland Trust’s Green Castle Woods outside Carmarthen.

Coed Dylan will provide space for a creative learning centre that will be housed within a self sustained complex of ecologically sound buildings. Using NLP, Theatre work, Healing and development practice within nature we aim to inspire those who seek a fresh perspective on their journey.

“Living pictures are a total inspiration”.

Sarah Brigham Artistic Director, Derby Playhouse

Watch this space as we grow the idea…

We have received a grant from Arts Council Wales to develop our business plan and connect with partners in Carmarthenshire.

We’ve just finished using one of our Magic Little Grants to create some outdoor gym equipment linked to the garden! More images to follow.!

We need volunteers on Coed Dylan. We are just off the Llansteffan Road before Llangain Village and just after the Woodland Trust’s Green Castle Wood. If you like gardening, woodworking, making tea, cakes, cooking over an open fire then we’d love to hear from you. The young people who visit us are very friendly and we want to find others to work alongside them to share, to have a conversation and to laugh.
Please contact us at if you are interested and want to help. Thank you!


Thanks to the Arts Council of Wales for their support on this exciting new project for Living Pictures and Coed Dylan. We worked with groups from Carmarthenshire and South Wales on the story of The Odyssey and the workshop was led by story teller and mentor Alexander Mackenzie and he was joined by Composer Simon Allen and local movement artist Eeva-Maria Mutka. We are able to finish the workshop with some bush craft skills and telling stories by firelight.
