St. David's Day

This year, with the majority of our learning community and staff working from home, we decided to celebrate St. David’s Day a little differently.

We launched the day with a What is Wales/Welshness to me? competition, inviting a variety of statements, photos, videos and pieces of work that represented Wales to some of our staff and students.

We received nearly 50 entries, from a variety of areas across the whole College, with many ESOL students taking part.

Students enjoy felt workshop

Fine Art students from Gower College Swansea have enjoyed a felt workshop with Vivian Rhule, a felt and print artist from Swansea who draws her inspiration mainly from local landscapes and nature.

The workshop was an opportunity for students to create pieces of felt work to include in their portfolios.

The students made one large piece of felt in a variety of colours that will support and form new ideas for future projects. They also had an invaluable opportunity to experience and visually engage with the work of a professional working in today’s Welsh felt industry.

College enjoys a Welsh Celebration Day

Staff at the Broadway Hair, Beauty and Holistic Centre recently enjoyed a Welsh Celebration Day as part of inset week.

Kicking off the day with a lot of laughter were comedians Ignacio Lopez and Daniel Glyn. They were followed by a session on Welsh place names with Bethan Mair, and a Welsh-themed treasure hunt. For the latter, staff used a dictionary app to search for the English versions of keywords used in a salon – a little task they can now adapt for their students.
