Current Exhibition

Yan Tan Tethera

6 June – 12 July


This exhibition explores the rich vein of folk songs and dances that have emanated from, and been inspired by, England's textiles industry.

Yan Tan Tethera was originally commissioned by the English Folk Dance and Song Society and curated by sonic visual artist David Littler as an inspirational project celebrating the wonderful wealth of textile songs in England.

The contemporary work has been made in reponse to influences such as the laments of Coventry ribbon weavers, protests of Preston Steam-loom strikers and Huddersfield loom breakers, as well as the processes and sounds of making; strutching and hackling to the rhythms of the spinning wheel, the din of the weaving shed, the punching of digital embroidery machines and the hum of the 3d printer.
