Oriel Myrddin Gallery joined with thousands of women in Cardiff on Sunday 10 June 2018 to march in celebration of 100 years of votes for women.
We worked with an inter-generational group of women, including young women from Dr Mz’s youth project in Carmarthen, and artist Rhiannon Williams to create our warrior butterfly banner.
The day was amazing. We were very proud to be represented alongside women from across wales enjoying the sunshine and marching together in solidarity through the streets of the city.

“The construction of stick chairs is as basic as it gets. Small sections of hedgerow timber are banged into a plank seat, creating a low-cost article that can stand daily use and be easily repaired.”
This talk will trace the development of the stick chair in Wales from the medieval period through to the present, and look at the cultural and craft context in which this versatile form flourished. Richard Bebb is an Honorary Research Fellow at National Museum Wales.
