The Lovespoon Carver's Craft at St Fagans

Come and meet two of the finest lovespoon carvers currently promoting the craft across Wales and beyond. Siôn Llewellyn of Bridgend and David Western, originally from Cardiff and now living in Canada, are both passionate about their art and ensuring that an age-old tradition remains fresh and vibrant in modern-day life.

Siôn was recently commissioned by the Museum to create exact replicas of a number of spoons in the collections and these will be on sale during the event. David will be promoting his recent books, History of Lovespoons and Fine Art of Carving Lovespoonswhich prominently feature many of the spoons housed at St Fagans.
Call in to the Museum Shop to see them at work between 11-1 and 2-4pm at the National History Museum of Wales at St Fagans. (near Cardiff, Wales)

I'm VERY excited to be appearing with fellow carver Siôn Llewellyn at the museum which is home to one of the finest collections of lovespoons in the world, and I hope that if you are in the area on May 26th, you'll stop in to say hello!!
