“Welsh Hat” built at Ceridwen by Bryn

Many of you will have heard that this year, 2017, has been designated Year of Legends in Wales and that a competition to choose eight structures to represent Welsh legends, history and heritage was held by Visit Wales in conjunction with Epic Retreats and Cambria Tours. The eight finalists are being  featured on ‘Cabins in the Wild’ on Channel 4 on Sunday nights at 8p.m. , a four part series which started on May 21st. Two of the ‘cabins’, the Dragon’s Eye and the Welsh Hat, were designed and made in Wales.

The Welsh Hat was designed by Niall Maxwell’s Rural Office for Architecture, based near Newcastle Emlyn and then the build took place at Ceridwen Centre, with Brynmor Dafys being the main man here doing most of the timber construction work!  Elements brought in from outside were the steel  fabrication, from Andy at Capel Iwan, the canvas making from specialists in Cardiff and the wool supplied by the National Wool Museum in Drefach-Felindre.

We were absolutely thrilled that the Welsh Hat won her heat and is now in the final four. Results this Sunday coming – 11th June.
