Gareth Irwin

Green wood worker

Gareth Irwin is a local green wood worker who makes wood ware using traditional methods and tools. His work includes Welsh stick chairs, stools, cabinetry, bowls and spoons. On site at Llwyn Celyn Gareth worked with groups of  students from Bridgewater and Taunton College and our Heritage at Work volunteers, to make a stool, benches and a Welsh stick chair for the Beast House and Threshing Barn.  Back in his own workshop he created a Welsh dresser and two benches using reclaimed doors. All his timber is sourced locally.  Gareth is a master of his art.
