MUSEUM PROJECT



We are pleased to announce that we have finally found a new home for our Museum and Teaching Center.
We are due to officially open in 2018 Where we will be following on from previous Pop Up Museum Events,
exploring a different aspect of the Welsh Textile Tradition each year.



The 2018  Exhibition entitled 'From Cottage Industry to Mill' charts the history of Welsh Textiles from its
 humble origins as a home based Handloom tradition, through the early years of international trade and on to

mechanisation and the introduction of power looms. This exhibition has been specifically chosen to celebrate
 the coming opening of Tŷ gwŷdd ; The loom house, where we will be holding Classes in Spinning,
Natural Plant Dying , Weaving, Quilting and other Textile related subjects.

The 2019 Exhibition 'Things of Thrift and Beauty' celebrates the Welsh Quilting tradition with addition
 to the collection of some beautiful pieces of hand work, showing the transition of the Quilt from the homespun woolens 
and whole cloths to the fancy pieced patchwork loved by the grander houses . we have also been able to add a few more cabinets this year which will house different displays throughout the year .

2020..to be announced shortly 






There will also be other exhibitions in the Museum Room and the Gallery throughout the year.
