Welsh T-shirts

One problem after learning Welsh is getting people to speak Welsh with you, especially strangers. A good way of letting the world know that you can speak Welsh is by wearing a Welsh language T-shirt. Welsh language T-shirts have slogans on them in Welsh, some funny, some about rugby, and others have political messages on them.

I've got a T-shirt with "'Trafferth mewn tafarn" on it, which is the title of a poem by Dafydd ap Gwilym, a famous poet from the 14th century.

Here's a list of Welsh language T-shirt companies:

Cowbois

Shwl di Mwl

CrysauT.co.uk

Celtes

Dafad Dai

Crysau Crwban

Silibil

Acen also intends to start a shop selling Welsh T-shirts. Go to www.cafepress.co.uk/siopacen.

We were comissioned to create a T-shirt with the idea - "I speak Welsh - Popty Ping!" This is now available to buy through the website. If you have any ideas for Welsh T-shirts please let us know!  

Do you have a favourite design or own one of these T-shirts? Let us know in the comments box below.


Exciting news from Wrexham

saithserenLast week, there was a public meeting in Wrexham in the building of the former Seven Stars pub, to discuss the idea of opening a Welsh language community centre for the town. It will be run by a voluntary organisation called Canolfan Gymraeg Wrecsam Cyfyngedig.  But first, they need to raise money. If they raise enough money, they hope to open a bar, a cafe and maybe a microbrewery! There will also be rooms to hold Welsh classes.

There are Welsh language community centres in Wales, all in the south - Clwb Ifor Bach in Cardiff, Clwb y Bont in Pontypridd and Tŷ Tawe in Swansea.

Good luck to Saith Seren. If you want to know more, go to the website, or how about buying shares!
