The Welsh Quilt Party
Our new exhibition for 2015
7th March to the 31st October
Running from 7th March to 31st October, our 2015 exhibition is an eclectic and sumptuous mix of quilts, textiles, paintings and pottery. We are thrilled to welcome the work of Eiriann and Denys Short and Cefyn Burgess to give a collaborative of colour and style. The exhibits on show include:
Historic Welsh Quilts 1812 - 1930
A superb collection from the Jen Jones collection, many exhibited here for the first time. Joining them as guests this year are:
