Contest and Now, Onto The Spoon
Our main hope is that our little 'seat of the pants' contest will inspire some idea contributions and will raise a bit of interest in both the Eisteddfod and in the lovespoon we use to generate donations.
So scribble down your poems, doodles or creative masterworks and be part of the fun!
Now onto the spoon....
I have selected another beautiful piece of spalted birch for this year's spoon. Laura and I used a similar piece cut from the same tree for last year's spoon and we were delighted with the way it carved and by it's beautiful grain and colour. I think the design for Eisteddfod Spoon Mark III will work beautifully with this piece of timber and I am very excited to get underway!
If you have followed the creation of the last two Eisteddfod spoons, you will already know the spoon's fundraising purpose. If you are new to this blog, the spoon we are designing and carving here will be the draw prize for those who donate to this year's Eisteddfod which will be held for the first time in Los Angeles. Every dollar donated equals one ticket for the final draw....so we encourage you to make the laws of probability work in your favour by donating as much as you can!!!
So please join in our design competition and/or donate a few bucks toward helping us stage the Third Annual West Coast Eisteddfod.
