WanderBox is a custom built, portable gallery and residency space, presented by artist Jo Marsh. The project hosts exhibitions of contemporary visual and applied arts, and offers residencies to both established and emerging artists in a wide variety of locations and settings.

WanderBox will be touring Wales over the next fi ve months, starting in Ruthin and travelling to Caernarfon, Cardiff, Swansea and Llangollen. WanderBox will host a different exhibition and artist in residence at each location.

Artist Jeanette Orrell is currently undertaking a WanderBox residency at Ruthin Craft Centre between Wednesday 5 and Saturday 22 November. She will be in situ on the following days between 1.00pm and 4.00pm:

Wednesday 5, Friday 7, Monday 10, Wednesday 12, Friday 14, Tuesday 18, Wednesday 19, Friday 21 and Saturday 22.

The Craft Centre was selected for Jeanette’s time with WanderBox due to the strong element of craft process within her practice. Skills including stitch are integral to much of the artist’s work, which explores ideas relating to home and domesticity.

Please join us on Sunday 23 November at 2.00pm for a closing event, and conversation between artists Jo Marsh and Jeanette Orrell. For more information and to follow the WanderBox tour, see
