At 11.00am on Tuesday, there will be an opportunity to hear the artist from Ceredigion, Ruth Jên, discussing her work with the broadcaster Dei Tomos.

Ruth has recently completed an MA at Aberystwyth University School of Art and her latest work concentrates on the tradition of shearing on the hill farms of northern Ceredigion.

A 5 minute film made as part of her work, concentrating on the shearer’s physical movements while working, can be seen at the Aberystwyth University stall throughout the week of the Eisteddfod.
