Connection exhibition opens on Feb 11

Cwilt Cymru’s brand new exhibition, Connection, will open at the Forge Mill Needle Museum in Redditch on February 11th.

Cwilt Cymru’s current members and four guest artists have each created two new pieces. Each maker has explored her own interpretation of the theme of Connection: family experiences, history, language, industry, landscape and the natural world. This is a diverse and fascinating exhibition which begins its tour at the Forge Mill. It will also feature in the Turning Twenty summer exhibition by the Quilt Association at the Minerva Arts Centre in Llanidloes from July-September.

Follow this blog to see the quilts and to read about their inspiration as we post pictures over the next few weeks. Here’s a sneak preview of four quilts:
