‘Siop Iard’ was opened in 2013, in the historic town of Caernarfon and is situated on Palace Street within the castle walls. The shop is run by Angela Evans, Ann Catrin Evans and Elin Mair and in July 2015 I joined to be part of the team. In the shop you can purchase work from the Siop Iard artists and see us making in our onsite workshops. The work on sale includes handmade jewellery in Gold, Silver, Porcelain, Iron, Brass and Copper with special pieces featuring precious stones. There is also wall plaques made out of porcelain and Welsh slate, porcelain wall hangings and picture by Ann Catrin.
Caernarfon branch offers a rich reward of locally made products and oozes a fresh chicness with its newly renovated look with fresh colours, bright lighting and gorgeous cabinets, each displaying tempting treasures. The large shop area creates a spacious, sophisticated, atmosphere for comfortable browsing, whilst the little workshop at the back is a compact reminder that each piece on sale is entirely handmade by the artists.
