An art exhibition ‘Geiriau T.Llew mewn Llun’ compiled of work from Gwynedd primary pupils will be shown in Caernarfon Library at the beginning of December.

The exhibition is a response to a competition held by Gwynedd Council’s Library Services as part of the centenary celebrations for one of Wales’ favourite authors – T. Llew Jones.

The task set for the primary school pupils was to create a poster or art work based on any poems out of the book ‘Penillion y Plant’ (The Children’s Verses) by T.Llew Jones.

Gwynedd Council’s School Librarian, Sioned Hywel Rowlands, said: “We had an amazing response to the competition with a high number of applicants. It was fantastic to see the children’s imagination and creativity in their responses to T.Llew Jones’ poems.”

The top spot was given to Ysgol Llandygai; Ysgol Nefyn; Ysgol Y Gelli, Caernarfon; Ysgol Pentreuchaf; Ysgol Chwilog and Ysgol Ganllwyd. Their prize was a workshop with Children’s Poet Laureate – Anni Llŷn. As a prize for four of the schools, they received a package of T.Llew Jones books as a gift from Palas Print and Gwasg Gomer.
