The Spinning Yarns

The Spinning Yarns - Weaving Communities from Fochriw in Wales - display Face-It, their group self-portrait in textiles, based on Picasso's work which looks at colour and form. 

Spinning Yarns - Weaving Communities is the banner title for a collective pro-active steering group from Fochriw - a post industrial village in the South Wales Valleys. Face-It is part of a larger project which aims to bring the whole community together. This growing series of individual’s self portraits from the village are worked in fabric as a response to Picasso Portraits. The project is facilitated by Artist in Residence Tracey Moberly, Co-ordinated by Amanda Jones and supported by The Parent Network, Head4Arts and The Health Lottery.
