Exhibition - The Silk Museum

Cynefin: Contemporary Quilted Textiles by Cwilt Cymru

Cwilt Cymru is a group of individual quilt artists, all living in, or with a connection to Wales. This is their third joint collection to be exhibited. The title of the exhibition, Cynefin, loosely translated means “a place or time where we instinctively feel we belong or feel most connected, a habitat; to be familiar with or accustomed to.” This unique layered Welsh word is pronounced ‘kerrnevin’. Each of the artists have interpreted the theme in their own way to produce contemporary textile pieces.
