  • Dylan Thomas Tribute Felted Refillable Notebook Workshop by Ffibrau Y Gwyr.
    This 3 night workshop combines felting with hand embroidery to create a beautiful hand bound notebook in tribute to the words of Dylan Thomas. Dylan’s birthday is on October 27th, what better way to celebrate than to become inspired to put pen to paper in your own beautifully handcrafted notebook?

    During the first evening you will use hand dyed fibre to make a piece of felt in colours you find reminiscent of your favourite Dylan Thomas piece, whether that be his famous play for voices, or a story, or a poem. We will have his books and papers on hand to inspire you.
    The second evening will see you hand embroider an excerpt from your favourite Dylan story or poem onto your handmade felt.
    The third and final evening will take place at the very place where Dylan was born and wrote two thirds of his work; The Dylan Thomas Birthplace. Taking inspiration from the walls around you, you will turn your embroidered felt into a refillable notebook. Will you be inspired by the workshop and Dylan’s words to use this notebook to record your own writing or poetry?

    WHEN & WHERE? Thursday 25th October, Wednesday 7th November and Friday 9th November, 7pm to 9pm. The first 2 evenings will take place in Clyne Farm Centre’s 400 year old stone corn barn, the last evening will be at the Dylan Thomas Birthplace.

    HOW TO BOOK? Tickets for the full workshop (you must attend all 3 evenings) are £51.50 per person plus £8.50 to pay to Ffibrau Y Gwyr on the first evening for materials.
    Teas, coffees, cakes/biscuits will be available throughout the sessions.
