St Fagans Stencil

I squeezed a lot into a recent short trip to Cardiff, including a few hours at St Fagans, a living history museum of Welsh life.

The museum is set in extensive grounds, taking visitors on a journey from Celtic times to the present day, and offering an insight into social history across the ages.

True to form, I found lots of crafting inspiration, not only in the woollen mill and tailor’s shop, but also in the structures and decoration in the buildings and gardens.

Here is a selection to whet your appetite!

See the small window in the red wall? That’s where the stencil is!

With free entry (see the museum website for car parking charges), if you’re in the area, it’s definitely worth a visit!

Have you been inspired on your travels lately? I’d love to hear about it!

    Next time, we’ll go down together and hassle Lesley… 😉 (not coming Friday btw)
    Love these photos!
    My most recent inspiration was in our local little castle in town, which has had a makeover and is worthy of more exploration soon, some nice frescoes that have been uncovered.
