What’s new

Come and support David’s book launch.

David will talk about and read extracts from his two new books ‘One Planet’ Cities and Making Readers Care at the Dragon’s Garden, Llandeilo on Thursday the 23rd of May 7-9pm


Spinning and weaving, green woodworking, preserves from garden plants and jewellery from out-of-circulation coins were among the crafts on display at Transition Tywi Trawsnewid’s Skill Share event in Llandeilo’s Civic Hall on Saturday May 18th 2019.

The free event attracted a steady flow of visitors, who watched the craftspeople in action and found out more about sustainable living generally.

There was much interest in Y Pantri Glas, a new shop due to open at 19 Carmarthen Street, Llandeilo, on Saturday June 15th. This shop aims to be zero-waste, without plastics or non-recyclable products and packaging. See YPantriGlas on Facebook for more information.

Janet from Capel Isaac demonstrated spinning, and mentioned two local groups: Llansadwrn Spinners, meeting in Llansadwrn Reading Room on Tuesdays, 2pm-4pm, and Carmarthen Spinners, Weavers and Dyers, who get together the first Saturday of every month in the community centre behind Carmarthen’s library, 10.30am-3pm.

Ieuan Mochyn Daear Coch was working with green wood, making an axe handle, and also forming part of the music quartet which provided entertainment. Ieuan has a Facebook page, Red Badger Woodland Crafts.

John Gaffney was in charge of refreshments, which included teas, coffees and many home-baked cakes.
