Students celebrate a local legend
Creative Media Production students at Gower College Swansea have paid a visit to 5 Cwmdonkin Drive, the birthplace of Dylan Thomas.
The Level 1 students are currently working on a project called 'Dylan's Swansea' which ties in with the upcoming centenary celebrations of the writer's birth.
"The house is quite literally on our doorstep at the Llwyn y Bryn campus," says lecturer Phil Jacobs. "Decorated in the Edwardian period style, it really brought the students' project alive for them. It's my aim to involve more of our creative arts students in the 2014 celebrations, I think it's a wonderful opportunity."
The house, which is situated in the heart of the Uplands area, has been sympathetically restored back to the condition it was in when the Thomas family first bought it in 1914. During their visit, the students were treated to an informative guided tour of the house and garden and were permitted to take lots of photographs as part of their project research.
