This autumn we’ll be celebrating weave at the gallery with two exhibitions. Steve Attwood Wright is one of our foremost hand loom weavers. Based less than 10 miles from the gallery, this will be the first time that we have shown a major body of his work. Oriel Davies is pleased to be able to share with you a body of work that spans decades and includes new work created specifically for this exhibition.

Blanket Coverage is a Llantarnam Grange touring exhibition curated by Laura Thomas featuring contemporary woven blankets by makers from across Wales, the UK and internationally.Their interpretations of the blanket push the boundaries of traditional hand weaving, designing for commercial production as well as address issues of sustainability.

Featuring: Llio James, Beatrice Larkin, Angie Parker, Eleanor Pritchard, Sioni Rhys Handweavers, Catarina Riccabona, Margo Selby, Maria Sigma, Wallace Sewell, Meghan Spielman, Laura Thomas & Melin Tregwynt
