Overview

The Lovespoon Workshop is a free visitor attraction based around the 17th century Welsh lovespoon tradition. Started by Kerry and Jill Thomas in 1975, the Thomas family continue handcarving Welsh lovespoons within Wales today. Everyone is welcome to come and see our unique collection of yearly lovespoons, one for every year since 1969 and all with a story to tell. Our lovespoons record events over the past fifty years, both within our own family and the wider world. We hand make all of our lovespoons onsite from a wide variety of woods and for all occasions including weddings, anniversaries, births, engagements and christenings. Over the years we have developed a range of over one hundred designs to suitable for a wide range of tastes, from traditional to contemporary. Each lovespoon includes two initials, with addition carving being available on request. We hope you will pop in to visit if you are in west Wales and we can share our work and this wonderful Welsh tradition with you.
