Inspired by an incredible journey - that starts back 150 years ago... when folk from Wales journeyed 8,000 miles to create a new "Wales beyond Wales" in South America - Patrwm Patagonia - uniting Welsh & South American styles

The famous Welsh wool mill, Melin Tregwynt, has produced a beautiful new design, Patrwm Patagonia, inspired by the story of the Welsh pioneers who settled in South America 150 years ago.

The pattern is a combination of the Tehuelche (the native people of Patagonia) and the Welsh approach to symmetry.

The pattern was used extensively throughout the National Theatre Wales and Theatr Genedlaethol Cymru production of {150} by Marc Rees in association with S4C and held in the Royal Opera House store in Aberdare from June - July 2015. One of the places it was referenced was in the production’s choreography. 

On her blog, {150} choreographer, Angharad Harrop, explained: “Using the pattern we have developed a score for the dancers to follow. It’s difficult to envisage exactly how it will work until we have all six dancers in the studio. The beginnings though are promising for an intricate step pattern that reflects the precision of the loom, the accuracy of Welsh clogging/stepping and focus and drive of the Welsh settlers who landed 150 years ago and successfully created a community that still thrives today.”
