Digswell Arts Fellow Allistair Covell’s digitally printed textile artwork Digital Stitch is currently on display at the National Wool Museum in Llandysul, Wales. Showing as part of the Cambrian Mountains Wool 2015 International Design Challenge, the exhibition is on display from the 27th November 2015 – 9th January 2016.
The exhibition features the work of 35 emerging and established designers who were selected by Cambrian Mountains Wool to created pieces that were made entirely from or incorporating Welsh wool. The Challenge is on display within the museum’s Textile Gallery, placed alongside the permanent exhibition of The National Flat Textile Collection.
Cambrian Mountains Wool is an initiative of the Cambrian Mountains Farmers CIC and supported by its president HRH Prince Charles. The Challenge was created with the intention of raising awareness amongst consumers of the benefits of working with 100% Welsh wool and showcasing its versatility and beauty.
Throughout 2015 the Challenge exhibition has appeared at various venues and events including the Hay Festival, Made by Hand Wales: The Contemporary Craft Fair, a private view reception attended by HRH Prince Charles in Aberystwyth and at The London Design Festival when the collection was in residence at the London Welsh Centre. The exhibition at the National Wool Museum marks the final stop on the 2015 Challenge UK Tour.
