Cadw are hosting two artists in residence at Castell Coch, who are using the space to create work inspired by the castle, the area and the community.
We’ve been keeping in touch with them to find out what they’re working on.
Lauren has been exploring light and shadow, working with the local bat group and meeting local residents.
