Toy workshop at Llanelli centre

Designing and making a toy is the opportunity for children and adults at the Discovery Centre on Llanelli North Dock this half term holiday.
More community use is being made of the flagship venue of Llanelli Millennium Coast to which thousands of holiday makers flock annually because it doubles as a Tourist Information Centre, café and restaurant.
Running the toy making workshop on Thursday 18th February during the half term holiday, with sessions running from 11am to 1pm and 2-4pm at the Centre, is Pontaddulais mum and business woman Louise Evans.
The workshop will show children and adults of all ages how to make a simple soft toy or working mobile, and children can use their imagination to make whatever toy they wish.
Mrs Evans said: “I will be helping to finish it into a soft toy that will be treasured forever. Older children will be shown how to add things like buttons and other materials to their toy.”
Mrs Evans said: “I run children’s themed crafting parties and after school craft club where children are taught numerous crafts and skills from sewing to felt making.
“I also run adult craft classes where adults can come along to day sessions where they will be shown how to make things from bags to toys to soft furnishings for the home.”
Busy Mrs Evans also runs a company called Rose and Rebellion which sells baby and toddler carriers that she designs herself myself and are produced in Wales website is –
County executive board member for regeneration and leisure services, Cllr Clive Scourfield, said: “We already have monthly craft fairs running at the Discovery Centre.
