Les Llewellyn - Basketmaker

Les Llewellyn is a basketmaker specialising in the traditional Welsh frame basket called the Cyntell. He produces these beautiful baskets in a workshop at the bottom of his garden in the Welsh town of Bridgend, Mid Glamorgan.

He learnt the skills from D.J. Davies, one of the last Welsh farmers making the Cyntell, he himself had been taught by his grandfather in the ancient craft and was keen to pass the skill onto others so that the knowledge wouldn't be lost.

Les has a variety of standard stock baskets available, or they can be made to order to suit your own requirements.
