Gwehyddu Enfawr! ~ Extreme Weaving!

Eleni ymunodd Oriel Myrddin â’r artist Laura Thomas ac Amgueddfa Wlân Cymru ar gyfer y Darlun Mawr 2017 – gan greu darn enfawr o gelfyddyd wedi’i wehyddu ar ffrâm ddeintur yr Amgueddfa.
Lleolir y ffrâm ddeintur ger glannau afon Bargod a chaiff ei defnyddio i sychu blancedi. Dyma darddiad yr ymadrodd Saesneg ‘on tenter hooks’.

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.
