The exhibits on show will include:

Historic Welsh Quilts 1812 - 1930

A superb collection from the Jen Jones collection, many exhibited here for the first time.

Eirian Short

Her extraordinary embroideries leap out of the frame in a brilliant cornucopia of pottery, animals and flowers.

Denys Short

Paintings, immersed in Wales textile heritage, blur the distinction between fabric and paint.

Cefyn Burgess

Dissent, emigration and textiles: three strands so deeply woven into the history and memory of Wales are drawn together in his evocative images of the fast disappearing chapels of Wales and the New World.

As always, our thanks go to Gwenllian Ashley who has once more inspired the design of the exhibits and to Jen Jones, without whom none of this would be possible. Anyone planning a visit to the exhibition who would like the opportunity to meet Jen is advised to book early and to phone in advance.

This exhibition is now closed
