In February 2019 Tŷ Pawb will be hosting an exhibition that delves into the history of what was at one time one of the largest textiles factory in the United Kingdom, if not Europe.

The exhibition will open alongside the much anticipated Grayson Perry exhibition, ‘Julie Cope’s Grand Tour’ on 22nd February 2019.

A BAD DEAL FROM WELSH GOVERNMENT MEANS WE’RE FORCED TO MAKE MORE CUTS. HAVE YOUR SAY…

All contributions welcome

If you worked at the Celanese factory and would like to share your memories with us, please get in touch. All contributions are welcome, including photographs and other printed materials, and we will endeveour to include as much as possible in the resulting exhibition.

The exhibition will feature textile work by contemporary artist Will Cruickshank. There will also be filmed dance and drama work by students from Coleg Cabria, inspired by the factory.

The students would like to incorporate your memories into their work; please let us know if you would be interested in being interviewed by the students to contribute to their performance.

Return to Redwither

We are also planning a reunion event at Redwither Tower, which formed part of the factory, which will include performances by the students. More information about this event will be made available in the coming weeks. All contributors will also be invited to the launch of the exhibition at Tŷ Pawb in February.

If you would like to contribute to the project and exhibition, please get in touch with Tŷ Pawb by no later than 3rd December: typawb@wrexham.gov.uk – 01978 292144.
