An exhibition of textiles by:
Cwilt Cymru (Wales)
Turning point (Scotland)
Loose Thread Quilters (Northern Ireland)
These three textile groups have taken the folklore and history of the Celtic lands as their inspiration. They celebrate their quilting traditions with fabrics such as cotton, silk, or wool, but also explore new media such as paper, metal, plastic or paint. Stitching by machine or hand may be accompanied by beading, burning, and drawing. This is quilting as an exciting contemporary art form.
We would love to see you at the exhibition opening on Saturday 3rd August, 12 noon to 2pm where you will be able to meet one of the artists, Dorothy Russell, a member of Cwilt Cymru.
Oriel Ynys Mon is open every day from 10:30 – 5:00
Admission is free.
There’s plenty of parking and a very good cafe.
