So good to see the work of amazing basketmakers I know and exhibits by makers whose work I’ve longed to see alongside talented makers who are entirely new to me. Well worth a visit! @jennycrisp_basketmaker @blithfieldwillowcrafts @sarahparamorbaskets #basketmaking#crafts#baskets#heritage#weaving#willowweaving#willowweaver#willow#craft#weavingdreams#traditionalcrafts
This intricate papercut, by @hf_papercuts, is inspired by embroidery samplers. Growing up in south Wales, textile samplers were a familiar sight in the homes of Helen’s relatives and so she associates these often personalised keepsakes with family and home. Still rooted in this handcraft tradition, Helen has reinterpreted the traditional designs in paper, incorporating symbols, images and words. Would you like to create your own unique papercut artwork? If so, why not sign-up to a half-day workshop led by Helen at Ruthin Craft Centre. You could bring a photograph of your home or a line from a poem or song to incorporate alongside traditional symbols and motifs. For further information, follow the link in bio or contact Ruthin Craft Centre on 01824 704774. Saturday 14 September 10.30am – 1pm or 2.30pm – 5pm Ruthin Craft Centre £30 Suitable for those with no previous experience. 18+. * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** Mae’r torlun cywrain hon, gan @hf_papercuts, wedi’i ysbrydoli gan sampleri brodwaith. Wrth dyfu i fyny yn ne Cymru, roedd sampleri tecstilau’n olygfa gyfarwydd yng nghartrefi ei pherthnasau ac felly bydd yn cysylltu’r cofroddion hyn fydd wedi’u personoli’n aml, â theulu a chartref.

I promised to share some images of the 'Basketry' exhibition running alongside 'Aelwyd' at Ruthin Craft Centre. And here they are! Curated by @gregory2970, the exhibition is 'a survey of a craft that has been somewhat sidelined in times of great technological advances, yet offers a sustainable answer to so much of our modern day throw-away habits.' Its a fascinating and beautiful exhibition, do visit if you can. * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** * *** Addewais rannu lluniau o'r arddangosfa' Basgedi' sy'n rhedeg ochr yn ochr ag 'Aelwyd' yng Nghanolfan Grefft Rhuthun. A dyma nhw! Wedi'i guradu gan @gregory2970, mae'r arddangosfa'n cynnig 'arolwg o grefft sydd wedi ei diystyru braidd ar adegau o gynnydd technolegol mawr, ac eto mae’n cynnig ateb cynaliadwy i gymaint o’n harferion modern gwastraffus.' Mae'n arddangosfa hynod ddiddorol a hardd, ewch am dro os fedrwch chi.

Two fabulous shows on NOW . Posted @withrepost • @nythuhandmade Here are a few photos by @stephenheatonphotography of the exhibition I curated recently for #ruthincraftcentre. I enjoyed each and every aspect of the process and would like to thank all involved. The exhibition continues until October 13, so plenty of time to pop over to have a look. NYTHU is sponsoring a series of maker-led workshops to coincide with the show. We kick off this Saturday with a workshop led by @clairecawtetextiles who will show participants how to make a contemporary love spoon. There are still a couple of places left, so contact the craft centre if you’d like to nab a place. Other workshops include making a bespoke papercut with @hf_papercuts and a ring nest basket with @rosiefarey. See bio for details. Alongside #aelwyd is an exhibition titled Basketry: Function and Ornament, curated by @gregory2970. I'll pop up some photos soon. You’re in for a treat. . 🏴 . Dyma ychydig o luniau gan @stephenheatonphotography o'r arddangosfa wnes i guradu yn ddiweddar ar gyfer #canolfangrefftrhuthun. Fe wnes i fwynhau pob un elfen o’r broses, a hoffwn ddiolch o waelod calon i bawb oedd ynghlwm. Mae'r arddangosfa'n parhau tan Hydref 13, felly digon o amser i alw heibio am sbec. Mae NYTHU yn noddi cyfres o weithdai dan arweiniad gwneuthurwr i gyd-fynd â'r sioe. Rydyn ni'n cychwyn y dydd Sadwrn hwn gyda gweithdy dan arweiniad @clairecawtetextiles a fydd yn dangos sut i wneud llwy garu gyfoes. Mae yna gwpl o lefydd ar ôl, felly cysylltwch â'r ganolfan os hoffech fachu lle. Bydd gweithdai eraill yn cynnwys gwneud torlun bapur personol gyda @hf_papercuts a chreu basged nyth fodrwyau gyda @rosiefarey. Gweler bio am fanylion. Ochr yn ochr ag #aelwyd mae arddangosfa o'r enw Basgedwaith: Swyddogaeth ac Addurniad, wedi'i guradu gan @gregory2970. Na'i rannu lluniau yn fuan. Mae o werth ei weld. @aceacmeinc @sarah_christensen_design @hf_papercuts @clairecawtetextiles
