Welsh Language playing cards designed by Richard Ruston-Burgess
Dyna mae’n ei ddweud ar y pecyn
Having moved to Wales, Richard started on a beginners’ Welsh course in Camarthen. “In the process of learning, we engaged in games using playing cards. It was at such a class when the tutor apologised for not being able to use Welsh playing cards. I immediately wondered why? That evening I explored the web to discover that you could purchase playing cards with the Welsh National Flag on the back and you could also purchase Welsh numbered flash cards. With this in mind I set about the idea of combining these two elements to come up with my solution for Welsh Language playing cards. Anyone interested is more than welcome to contact me at email@example.com for further information”. See my original sketch►
