Merched Chwarel is a collaboration between artists Marged Pendrell, Jwls Williams, Lisa Hudson and Lindsey Colbourne, whose work is connected to the quarries of North Wales where we each live and work. We started working together in 2016.
Our work explores the question ‘Who are we, the Merched Chwarel (Quarry Women) of the past, present and future?
How are our aesthetics, identity and connection to place, culture and language mediated by the quarries?’
