A Different Kind of Light
Swansea Museum

Lois was reminded of her childhood when she visited the Abbey Woollen Mill at the Maritime & Industrial Museum. Brought up on a farm at St. Asaph’s in North Wales, she was taught by her grandmother how to spin wool on a hand wheel.

Seeing the industrial version inspired an installation within the Abbey Woollen Mill that was not just infused with a sense of nostalgia but, combined with its location of an industrial setting, assumed a new poetic life.
