Llanddwyn Island is rich in legend, and in particular those associated with Dwynwen, the Welsh patron saint of lovers, making her the Welsh equivalent of St. Valentine. Her Saint’s day is 25 January and is often celebrated by the Welsh with cards and flowers.

Making love spoons is a traditional craft that dates back to the 17th century. Over generations, decorative carvings were added to the spoon and it lost its original practical use – the love spoon was given to a young woman by her suitor – and became a treasured decorative item to be hung on a wall.
