Guest Pinner: Siân Conti

 

To accompany our A Darker Thread // Edefyn Tywyllach exhibition, we’ve asked our own Siân Conti to be our Pinterest Guest Pinner from July – October 2017.

If you’re a regular to Oriel Myrddin Gallery you will know Siân – she started with us in 1993, that’s 24 years ago…it’s a bit like ‘Hotel California’ here (but in a good way!)

Siân was trained in Dyfed College of Art in Carmarthen through a four year course in Fashion Design (1976 – 80). After graduating she worked in various roles; Junior Designer at Morris Cohen  in Port Talbot, Assistant Designer and Pattern Cutter for Welsh Brides in Cardigan and then with Jamie and Jessie Seaton Knitwear (Toast)in Llanfynnydd. For 10 years she was the wardrobe genius behind Merlin Youth Theatre in Carmarthen “…creating and making costumes for zillions of youth Members…well perhaps not, but it was an awful lot!”. You can see from this very charming photograph that Siân started early on her dressmaking career!

Siân is Oriel Myrddin Gallery’s resident textiles expert and we’re very lucky to have her…so enjoy her pins for the next few months…we can’t wait to see what she finds!
