Description

Mae’r cyrsiau undydd yma'n gyfle i droi eich llaw at hen grefft gofannu yn yr adeilad ysbrydoledig, Gweithdy, sef gweithdy crefft ac oriel newydd sbon yr Amgueddfa sy’n dathlu sgiliau gwneuthurwyr ddoe a heddiw.

Fel rhan o grŵp bach o dan arweiniad Andrew Murphy, gof yr Amgueddfa, byddwch yn dysgu sut i drin dur poeth a chreu darn o waith metel unigryw wedi’i ddylunio gennych chi. Bydd pawb yn creu procer syml, yn ogystal â rhai addurniadau bychain o'n rhestr os fydd amser.

Mae’r diwrnod hwyl, hamddenol hwn yn addas i ddechreuwyr pur. Bydd tri lle i'w archebu bob diwrnod.

These one day courses are a chance to try your hand at the ancient art of blacksmithing in the inspirational setting of Gweithdy, the Museum’s brand new workshop and gallery celebrating the skills of makers past and present.

Working as part of a small group under the guidance of Andrew Murphy, the Museum blacksmith, you’ll learn how to manipulate hot steel and create your own uniquely decorated piece of metalwork. Each student will make a simple poker, plus a couple of other small items from a suggested list* to take home. *(if there’s time)
