Room within a Room

A short film by Hugh Griffiths about the ‘Room within a Room’ narrated by Julia Griffiths Jones.

“Being Welsh, but inspired by Folk Art from Eastern Europe has meant that my life and artistic practice has been entwined across many countries. Room within a Room is a culmination of my favourite drawings from many journeys and contains – amongst other things – a blouse and cap from Slovakia, a red striped bed-gown and a three-legged table from Wales, a chair from the wine museum in Bratislava.”

In 2014 Julia was awarded a Creative Wales Ambassador Award to revisit Eastern Europe and spend some time at Ruthin Craft Centre developing her ideas for A Room Within A Room, the exhibitions showing here are the result of those artistic journeys.
