What's in the Welsh Quilt Centre.
Since opening in 2009 The Welsh Quilt Centre has become an exceptional venue in the heart of the Teifi Valley. It was officially opened in 2010 by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales and the Duchess of Cornwall.
The idea to open a centre to celebrate and promote a wider understanding of the Welsh Quilt, came from Jen Jones, whose obsession with collecting Welsh Quilts, Blankets and textiles has spanned over forty years. Jen’s perseverance has led to the saving and preservation of this vital part of Welsh heritage. This has been appreciated by the Cambrian Mountains Initiative, leading to Jen Jones being appointed as Tourism Ambassador. The Cambrian Mountains Initiative was inspired by His Royal Highness, The Prince of Wales to ‘sustain traditional Welsh upland farms and rural communities'.
Here at Lampeter’s historic Town Hall we believe we offer a truly unique experience by celebrating the ancient art of the Welsh Quilt alongside the contemporary works of local and international artists. Our annual exhibitions take place between March and October/November. There is so much to see in our 3 Galleries, Gallery Shop and we even have a Café-Deli next door.
