The work is inspired by the language, history and culture of Wales and the desire to share the stories. The most recent work responds to the words of Emrys ap Iwan who, over 100 years ago, charged his fellow Welsh people to remain together as a nation and preserve the language – “Ymgedwch yn genedl, cedwch yr iaith”. The body of work also reflects on how history can be often be hidden until we look deeper and search for it.

 

During the opening evening Bethan spoke about the the quilts’ inspiration
