Background

Helly Powell is a Welsh textile artist living in Monmouthshire where she creates “Fauxidermy” sculptural pieces which have caught the imagination of many. 
Best known for her “Parc Lodge” collection, Helly has joined forces with Melin Tregwynt and Crickhowell’s oriel CRiC gallery to create a new collection, “The Beasts of the Mabinogion”, breathing life into the native wildlife of an ancient mystical Welsh landscape. 

In celebration of the national ‘Year Of Legends’, the exhibition will go on tour, starting here at Melin Tregwynt, and will be open to the public from 26 March to 5 May 2017.

Helly Powell’s ‘Fauxidermy’ sculptures are simply beautiful to look at. Her work appears so life-like that each animal could have just stepped out of the Welsh landscape.  This combined with the subtle mix of selected fabrics she has used gives each piece a magical quality. We’re pleased that our fabrics provided inspiration for these majestic creatures, and are excited to be one of the venues for this touring exhibition.

We are delighted to be involved in this project which showcases the tradition of weaving kept alive at the Mill alongside the creative use of the textiles by Helly who has been inspired by the early Welsh collection of tales from which the Mabinogion takes its name.  Visitors to the Mill will be able to see sculptures based on Rhiannon’s horse, the boar hunt and the stag hunt, alongside smaller pieces. Combining a visit to the working mill, with an opportunity to see this unique exhibition and explore the Pembrokeshire National Park with its spectacular beaches, cliffs and coastal footpaths all within five minutes easy walk from the Mill, are the ingredients of a wonderful experience.
