P1000539Dafen Church – Men’s Fellowship and Mothers’ Union Joint Meeting

St. David’s Day 2016.

A very good turnout of members enjoyed the afternoon’s meeting. The guest speaker was Arnold James and his Topic was “Bardic Chairs”.                            

Arnold, in his youth, followed family tradition by becoming a chorister in Dafen Church choir.                                                                                                              

He crafted the Bishop’s Chair and side chairs that can be seen in the altar area of Dafen Church.

Arnolds’ talk was very interesting: he gave us a Power Point display of Bardic Chairs that he had crafted over the years. He explained the stages and craftsmanship involved in his creations especially in his making of the Chair for the 2000 Naional Eisteddfod in Llanelli.
