The Friends of Hafod-Morfa are going to be recording some oral histories of people who worked in the Hafod-Morfa Copperworks in the latter half of the twentieth century over the next few months. Over the last few years we have been approached by several people who want to share their stories and so we are going to train a handful of volunteers and start to record some of these.
I am wondering if you may be interested in being one of those volunteers. We have arranged a training session with Sian Williams from the Miners Library on the 16th May (Monday from 2.30 to 4.30pm. This session will explore the best practice involved in recording and some of the practical considerations, by working with some of the recordings in the library.
Some of the recipients of this email will already have experience of oral history from the White Rock project. You would be welcome to attend the training or not if you have experience.
Please get in touch if you would be interested in getting involved in this activity.
