Pembrokeshire College recently celebrated St Dwynwen's Day, which is celebrated in Wales on 25 January. St Dwynwen is the Welsh patron saint of lovers, which makes her the Welsh equivalent of St Valentine.
College students embraced this day with an exhibition from BA Design students, cake stalls, card making and nail painting. International students also joined in the festivities with Chinese calligraphy and balloon art.
BA students became familiar with this female icon Dwynwen and worked tirelessly to translate the mythical love story into art. Students created a giant papier-mâché love spoon, 3D paper sculptures, oil paintings and ceramics.
“I was inspired by Golden Venture paper folding, a technique in which identical paper triangles are folded together to create a 3D form. I used paper for a book to symbolise that true love is more than just words,” said student Kieran Warlow.
Welsh Language development officer said “We’ve had a great day at the College where two cultures have come together, celebrating St Dwynwen and the Chinese New Year.
