Welcome to Taff Rocks. 

This group has been inspired by so many groups popping up around the UK, the world even, e.g. Love on the Rocks UK, Kindness Rock Project, RockUK, RCT Rocks and so many more.

Taff Rocks has its birthplace in the former Welsh mining village of Aberfan, based on the banks of the River Taff and alongside the Taff Trail.
Our Mission is: to enhance people’s lives and community cohesion through fun, inspiration, creativity and self-expression. By providing workshop experiences, we can establish meaningful connections between generations, art therapy and share love and smiles, one rock at a time.
You don't need to be based along the river or any of its tributaries, you are welcome to join us from anywhere in the world and even hide your rocks anywhere in the world too.

Starting in the south in Cardiff Bay and traveling north, through the Brecon Beacons and up to the Brecon Theatre. The route, along the Taff Trail follows National Cycle Route 8. 

The River Taff takes us from its beginnings as two rivers in the Brecon Beacons, the Taff Fechan, and the Taff Fawr, down through to the Severn Estuary.

The painted rocks craze has mushroomed across the UK with artists, sometimes known as "Rockers" and is helping bring families together by way of a wholesome, family activity and away from the sofa and computer games.

Painting and decorating rocks ...
  • Strengthens fine motor skills
  • Promotes creativity
  • Is an inclusive activity
  • Encourages sharing and kindness
  • Can also help with distances, geography etc. when finding out where the rocks have been
You don't need to be a Van Gogh, any suitable image on a rock will work just fine, from stick people to flowers, from works of art to doodles, they're all rock-worthy works of wonder! And sure to bring a smile to someone's face.

If you have family, friends or a pen pal abroad or further afield in the UK, why not ask them to get involved by painting a rock for Taff Rocks and sharing it in their area, why not see if it can come home to this area.

If you're reading this, then creating or hunting/finding works of rock art is for you. The person next to you? It's for them too. In fact, it's for anyone, any age, any gender, the sky is the limit! The world is your oyster!

Founding Members:
  • Taff Rocks was co-founded by a Mother and Daughter team. It happened one summer afternoon, in 2018, whilst sitting out in the garden enjoying every little ray of rare sunshine that Wales was gifted that summer. Both, with caring responsibilities, needed something to do when chilling. One had the idea, the other, the name. The Facebook group was founded shortly after.
  • The 'Dynamic Duo' are the public face of Taff Rocks, 'Ambassadors' if you like, and represent the group as often as possible when out in public or online.
  • More about this duo will be added on a separate page at a later date
Social Media Admin and Moderators:
  • The Facebook Group is administrated by the 'Dynamic Duo' and moderated by friends or family who make up the social media group's members.
  • The Facebook Page is administrated by the 'Dynamic Duo' and is used for sharing information publically.
