Welcome! We are a collective of Welsh artisans, bringing the joy of craft fairs to you on your sofa whilst it is not possible for you to come to us!
We are a group of makers and producers who make a range of handcrafted items and produce using a range of techniques and materials. We will be bringing you regular stay at home craft fairs during the lockdown period, and for as long as public events such as this are not possible.
The sellers at each event will vary, meaning you can ‘pop along’ to multiple events that we run and experience new sellers each time.
We look forward to welcoming you at out next event.
Croeso! Rydym yn griw o grefftwyr Cymreig sy’n ceisio dod â llawenydd ffeiriau crefft i chi ar eich soffa, tra nad yw’n bosib i chi ddod atom ni!
Rydym yn grŵp o wneuthurwyr a chynhyrchwyr sy’n creu amrywiaeth o eitemau a chynnyrch â llaw gan ddefnyddio amrywiaeth o dechnegau a deunyddiau. Byddwn yn dod â ffeiriau crefft cartref atoch yn rheolaidd yn ystod y cyfyngiadau symud, ac am gyhyd ac nad yw cynnal digwyddiadau cyhoeddus fel hyn yn bosibl.
Bydd y gwerthwyr ym mhob digwyddiad yn amrywio, sy’n golygu y gallwch ‘alw heibio’ nifer o ddigwyddiadau rydym yn eu cynnal a phrofi gwerthwyr newydd bob tro.
Edrychwn ymlaen at eich croesawu i’r digwyddiad nesaf.

April 27th – May 2nd
We’re adapting the Exquisite Corpse drawing game into a film challenge.
We’re looking for 5 people to make a scene each that we will be put together to create one short film. Each film maker will only get to see the previous scene. We expect the scenes to vaguely follow the usual film story structure – so scene 1 is the set-up and scene 5 concludes the story.
Please contact me here on email to sign up by Sunday 26th April.
Think of locations and characters as a bit like the film “I’m Not There” where different actors played Bob Dylan.
Up for the challenge then contact firstname.lastname@example.org – we’ll see how the first one goes and hopefully we’ll continue to create a weekly challenge.
– Must be child friendly content
– Please film in landscape
– Film your scene within 24 hours of receiving instructions – the film should take 5 days to make
– If you use music try and make it open source as otherwise it may be blocked on social media channels
How it works…
1 – We give the first film maker a scenario
2 – Film maker 2 get film makers 1 scene
3 – Film maker 3 gets film makers 2 scene
4 – Film maker 4 gets film makers 3 scene
5 – Film maker 5 gets film makers 4 scene
6 – We will edit the film together and make it available on our social media channels
Film makers should send their scenes to Sian – email@example.com or via google drive / dropbox / Wetransfer
Rydym yn addasu’r gêm arlunio ‘Exquisite Corpse’ yn her ffilm.
Rydym yn chwilio am 5 unigolyn i greu golygfa fydd yn cael eu cyfuno gennym i greu un ffilm fer. Dim ond yr olygfa flaenorol y bydd pob gwneuthurwr ffilm yn cael ei gweld. Rydym yn disgwyl i’r golygfeydd ddilyn yn fras strwythur straeon ffilm – felly bydd yr olygfa gyntaf yn gosod y sylfeini, a’r 5ed golygfa’n ddiweddglo’r stori.
Dylid meddwl am leoliadau a chymeriadau sy’n debyg i’r ffilm “I’m Not There” gydag actorion gwahanol yn chwarae Bob Dylan.
Hoffi syniad yr her yma? Os felly, cysylltwch â firstname.lastname@example.org – cawn weld sut aiff y cyntaf, a gyda lwc byddwn yn gallu symud at greu her bob wythnos.
– Mae’n rhaid i’r cynnwys fod yn addas i blant
– Dylid ffilmio ar ffurf tirlun
– Bydd gofyn ffilmio’ch golygfa o fewn 24 awr i dderbyn eich cyfarwyddiadau – dylai cymryd 5 diwrnod i greu’r ffilm
– Os byddwch yn defnyddio cerddoriaeth, dylid sicrhau nad oes unrhyw gyfyngiadau o ran ffynhonnell, neu fel arall hwyrach y bydd sianeli cyfryngau cymdeithasol yn ei atal
Sut mae’n gweithio…
1 – Byddwn yn rhoi sefyllfa i’r gwneuthurwr ffilm cyntaf
2 – Bydd yr 2ail gwneuthurwr ffilm yn derbyn golygfa’r gwneuthurwr ffilm cyntaf
3 – Bydd y 3ydd gwneuthurwr ffilm yn derbyn golygfa’r ail wneuthurwr ffilm
4 – Bydd y 4ydd gwneuthurwr ffilm yn derbyn golygfa’r 3ydd gwneuthurwr ffilm
5 – Bydd y 5ed gwneuthurwr ffilm yn derbyn golygfa’r 4ydd gwneuthurwr ffilm
6 – Byddwn yn gwneud y gwaith golygu i gyfuno’r ffilm ac yn ei rhoi ar ein sianeli cyfryngau cymdeithasol
Dylai gwneuthurwyr ffilm anfon eu golygfeydd at Siân – email@example.com neu drwy google drive / dropbox / Wetransfer

Live Active Family Wellbeing Sessions
Tuesday 4pm and Thursdays 09:30
We’re excited to share with you that over the coming weeks you will have the opportunity to join in with some live Active Family Wellbeing sessions on our Actif Conwy Facebook page.
Developing co-ordination, strength and gentle flexibility, these sessions will be a fun and engaging way for you and your child to exercise, learn and relax together at home or in your garden. Classes will contain a combination of Tai chi, secular yoga, stories, songs, blended mindfulness practices, themed games and lots of imaginative interaction! Enjoy learning breathing techniques and gently ease aches and pains as we stretch, energise and explore what bite size moments of relaxation feel like together.
These sessions are aimed at children 4 – 12 years old with their family members at home. Please tag your friends to let them know about the upcoming free classes and make sure you’re following our Facebook page so you don’t miss any updates and can see the sessions when they go live!
You should consult your Doctor before commencing any new exercise routine and only participate with exercise you are comfortable with.
