The Welsh Woollen Museum

Tucked away in the Welsh countryside this extremely informative and fascinating museum is almost impossible to find. Inside is a detailed documentation of the ancient art of making woven welsh blankets from the untouched raw material to the final product. I am very exited to be specializing in weave after the Easter break. Not only will I gain considerable knowledge and skill, but it is also very closely connected to Welsh tradition and history and my own personal heritage. The process of actually creating a cloth allows for an extreme level of control over each decision and design development.

As well as its factual insight, the museum is also currently hosting a Sasha Kagan exhibition. Her iconic knitwear pieces demonstrate a passion for geometry, natural forms and colour and range form pictorial repeats to abstract pattern.
