The Big Draw – Living Lines Film

In the gallery foyer until 21st October.

This year Oriel Myrddin Gallery joined forces with artist Laura Thomas and the National Wool Museum for the 2017 Big Draw – creating a giant woven work of art on the Museum’s tenter frame.

The tenter frame is situated near the banks of the river Bargod and is used for drying blankets after fulling – a process where the cloth is washed and then stretched out to dry so it doesn’t shrink. This is where we get the expression on tenter hooks.

The weaving, done by over 40 participants was filmed and turned into a time lapse animation by Jacob Whittaker.
