YFC Chair with echoes of dirt roads

Bangor Mail - - News -

THE Chair win­ner at this year’s Cl­wyd young farm­ers’ Eisteddfod will take their plau­dits while cush­ioned on Patag­o­nian lux­ury.

To be awarded to the best item of prose of poem, the Chair fea­tures a cush­ion made by Bethesda tex­tile artist Ce­fyn Burgess.

Its geo­met­ric de­sign is based on his Patag­o­ni­ain­flu­enced Shad­ows of the

Prairie art­works.

The cush­ion is wo­ven in black-and-white wool to re­flect the pat­tern of shad­ows cast by trees along­side Patag­o­nia’s dirt track roads.

The Chair was spon­sored by Den­bigh’s Erfyl and Sioned Jones, for­mer mem­bers of the Nant­g­lyn club.

It’s now been for­mally handed over to Gwenno Davies, chair of Cl­wyd YFC.

Erfyl said it was a priv­i­lege. “The YFC is very close to our hearts,” he said.

“Both Sioned and my­self have achieved so much by be­ing mem­bers – we have had nu­mer­ous op­por­tu­ni­ties to com­pete and learn.”

Cl­wyd YFC’s Eisteddfod is at Den­bigh Town Hall on Satur­day, Oc­to­ber 26, from 3pm.

Ad­ju­di­ca­tor is Sian Al­wen.
