Yan Tan Tether

Yan Tan Tether

Yan Tan Tether is a series of public exhibitions and events exploring how we experience and interact with the various landscapes around us; from the historic, to the geological, economic to the digital.

The title refers to the first three numbers of the traditional sheep-counting system used by shepherds on the moors, a practice which persisted long after the introduction of modern numerals and into the era of industrialisation. On counting to jigget (twenty) the shepherd would pick up a stone—representing the twenty sheep—and begin the count again.

Featuring a range of artists from Huddersfield and afar, working across a variety of disciplines, brought together in a dialogue with the surrounding town, landscape and people

Thursday 11am - 7pm
Friday 11am - 5pm
Saturday 11am - 4pm
