Wood Turning

Wood Turning

Back to : Home and Interiors

The widespread practice of wood-turning and the abundance of sycamore throughout the West Wales valleys gave rise to a thriving wood industry, and made the Teifi Valley and in particular the village of Abercuch, famous far beyond Wales for its woodcrafting skill and production. The most important elements of this industry were bowl-turning and spoon-carving.

Blodwen has commissioned a range of hand turned traditional cawl (Welsh broth) bowls, lovespoons, ladles and platters from a selection of master wood turners in the area.
