Amgueddfa Cymru

Hafan

We would like to offer volunteers the opportunity to get involved in caring for the museum collections on open display in the historic houses. We have a huge number of objects, including items made from pottery, glass, textiles, paper, wood and leather, all of which need constant care and repair.


We plan to use traditional housekeeping techniques as well as modern conservation methods to help keep our collection looking good.  No previous experience is required, all training will be provided.


New facilities are also being created for our housekeeping volunteers, providing a comfortable area to work as well as relax.


If you are interested in joining us, please follow this link to the application form and we look forward to hearing from you.
This is a pilot project so even if the initial days we offer are not suitable, please still register your interest as more opportunities will arise in the future.

Mae'n ddiwrnod cyffrous iawn yn yr adran ddigidol. Dwi'n falch o allu rhannu hwn efo chi, Polisi Cyfryngau Cymdeithasol diwygiedig ar gyfer gweplyfrwyr, trydarwyr, tumblrwyr ayb yr amgueddfa. Dwi wedi ceisio ei gadw'n bolisi darllenadwy a defnyddiol, sydd yn meddu ar rywfaint o synnwyr cyffredin - felly cymwch bip arno a rhowch wybod os oes rhywbeth ciami neu goll amdano.

Lawrlwytho Polisi Cyfryngau Cymdeithasol Amgueddfa Cymru

Lluniwyd y polisi blaenorol yn 2009 - ers hynny, mae'n disgwyliadau a'n dyfeisiau wedi llamu ymlaen (i fyny?). Dwi'n gobeithio y bydd y ddogfen hon yn aros yn gyfredol trwy adborth ac ail-ymweld, wrth i ni fracso yn y llif o blatfformau newydd, telerau ac amodau wedi'u golygu dros nos, yn ogystal â megamethiannau a chwiwiau-ffasiwn ar-lein.

Mae'n chwaer i'r Pecyn Cymorth Cyfryngau Cymdeithasol - dwi'n dal i lunio'r ddogfen honno, am fy mod eisio iddi edrych rywfaint yn fwy diddorol (a deniadol) - mi fyddaf yn siwr o bostio linc pan fydd y Pecyn yn barod. Fy ngobaith yw y bydd yn ddogfen gyfeiriol a defnyddiol - rhywbeth sy'n mynegi cymaint yw posibiliadau cyfryngau cymdeithasol, lle mae'r polisi yn diffinio ffiniau ein gwaith ac rywfaint yn fwy athraweslyd. Diolch i bawb sydd wedi cyfrannu ato, ac yn arbennig i'n deiliaid cyfri gweithredol am rannu adborth.

Rhowch wybod be 'dych chi'n feddwl yn y sylwadau!


Astudiaeth newid hinsawdd ar dir eich ysgol!
Daearyddiaeth & Gwyddoniaeth (CA2)


Defnyddiwch eich dosbarth awyr agored! Ymunwch â'r 175 o ysgolion sy'n cymryd rhan yn yr arbrawf arbennig hwn!


Mae Bylbiau'r Gwanwyn i Ysgolion yn rhoi cyfle i ddisgyblion cynradd fabwysiadu, astudio a chofnodi datblygiad bylbiau'r gwanwyn fel rhan o rwydwaith gwylio'r gwanwyn. Caiff pob disgybl fwlb Cennin Pedr Dinbych, Crocws ac photyn gardd er mwyn cofnodi'r tyfiant a'r amserau blodeuo.

Trwy gasglu a chymharu data mae disgyblion yn darganfod sut mae'r newid yn ein hinsawdd yn effeithio ar ein tymhorau, a beth mae hyn yn ei olygu i ni ac i'r natur o'n cwmpas. Mae disgyblion yn cymryd rhan yn Her Athro'r Ardd i gael tystysgrif gwyddonydd gwych.

Gall ysgolion ledled Cymru gymryd rhan gan bod y canlyniadau yn cael eu casglu drwy'r we (neu'r post os oes rhaid). Mae'r prosiect yn un parhaus a gall ysgolion gymryd rhan yn flynyddol.

Er mwyn gwneud cais i gymryd rhan yn Bylbiau’r Gwanwyn i Ysgolion 2015-2016 llenwch y ffurflen gais ar-lein drwy ddilyn y ddolen isod.

Ceisiadau nawr ar agor ond mae niferoedd yn gyfyngedig felly wnewch gais yn fuan i sicrhau eich lle ar y prosiect! Ceisiadau ar agor i ysgolion yng Nghymru yn unig. Mae’r dyddiad cau wedi pasio ar gyfer ysgolion o’r Alban a Lloegr ond mae croeso i chi gysylltu ag Ymddiriedolaeth Edina am wybodaeth ar sut i gymryd rhan yn y project yn 2016-2017.

E-bost SCAN

We are currently recruiting housekeeping volunteers at St.Fagans to help look after the displays in the historic houses and Castle. This is a new scheme that is open to anyone who would like to get involved and learn more about traditional housekeeping techniques. Many of which still have a use today, such as using natural herbs and flowers to repel moths from precious woollen jumpers.


With your help we would also like to enhance the interpretation of the buildings by putting more of the collections on display and reintroduce traditional crafts to create replica items, such as rag rugs, baskets and wicker carpet beaters.


Training will be provided, so no previous experience is required, all we ask in return is a few hours of your time a week.  This is a pilot project, so even if the days currently on offer are not suitable please do still get in contact and register your interest.


As part of the project we have converted one of the cottages at Llwyn yr Eos farm into a base for housekeeping volunteers, with studios and a comfortable place to relax.


If you are interested in becoming a housekeeping volunteer please follow this link and we look forward to hearing from you.

One of the joys of working in the world of contemporary art is the opportunity it presents to hear information directly from the artist.

On Friday we are lucky enough to have such an opportunity from two artists who were commissioned to make works for Fragile? Clare Twomey and Claire Curneen (12/06/2015 at 1.05pm).

Fragile? In Conversation with the Artists, Clare Twomey and Claire Curneen

In preparation for this we have collated sources of information on the two artists:

Clare Twomey

Clare Twomey is a British artist and a research fellow at the University of Westminster who works with clay in large-scale installations, Sculpture and site-specific works. Her work in Fragile? is a version of "Consciousness/Conscience" (claretwomey.com).

A statement on her University of Westminster Research Fellow profile reads:

"A great deal of my projects my practice can be understood as "post-studio ceramics", my work engages with clay yet often at a critical distance. I have in the past five years negotiated the realms of performance, serial production, and transience, and often involve site-specific installations. I am especially concerned with the affective relations that bind people and things, and how objects can enable a dialogue with the viewer. Clay is my constant medium as it embodies notions of permanence and inheritance, and has a profound connection with the everyday."

Over the past 10 years she has exhibited at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Tate, Crafts Council, Museum of Modern Art Kyoto Japan, the Eden Project, York Museum, Denver Art Museum and the Royal Academy of Arts.

Claire Curneen

Claire Curneen is a tutor at Cardiff School of Art and Design. Her work is distinct for its figurative representation which draws us into a world of narrative. She has two works in Fragile? one piece already owned by the museum 'In the Tradition of Smiling Angels' from 2007 (View work in Art Online) and a work commissioned by the Derek Williams Trust called 'Touched'.

A statement on her website reads: " As one of the UK's foremost ceramic artists Curneen draws us into a world of narrative, where the tension between the real and the imagined is played out before us. Her ceramic figures have an imposing presence which tap into our desires, fears and mysteries....These figures bear bold narratives of human experiences and explore themes around death, rebirth and the sublime, which are both subtle and dramatic."

Her work has been exhibited both in Britain (Mission Gallery, Swansea, London and Ruthin Craft Centre to name a few) and internationally in Switzerland, the USA and France.
