Weaving is the work of the heart and the mind, not only the hand.’ CHAMPA SIJU, artisan.
This exhibition is a celebration of a wider exchange project known as Threads. Artists from Wales and artisans from Kachchh in rural Gujarat have shared studio time and field trips, community traditions and personal experiences. Skills rooted in generations of textile practice and impressions forged by open minds and new horizons come together to give this exhibition heart and soul. It presents new work by Rajiben M. Vankar, Champa Siju, Julia Griffiths Jones, Eleri Mills, Laura Thomas and Louise Tucker. Threads is produced by Ceri Jones, Fieldwork in partnership with cultural development organisation Khamir.
