Some of our Standard rooms have recently had a makeover and during our search for Welsh influenced design we came across the wonderful work of Cefyn Burgess.

Born and raised in the slate quarry village of Bethesda, Cefyn graduated from Manchester with a BA (hons) in woven textiles. He then went on to gain an MA in textiles at the Royal College of Art.

Leaving London in the late 1980’s he became the first weaver in residence at Paradise Mill Silk Museum in Macclesfield, giving him the opportunity to develop his original range of fine hand woven silk fabrics. Since then he has been designing jacquard woven fabrics and quality interior products including his range of Welsh tapestry blankets, quilts, throws and cushions.

He currently works from his studio shop at Ruthin Craft Centre which is where our interior designer stumbled upon his work almost by accident on a day out. Cefyn’s work mesmerised her with it’s connection to both the landscape and it’s earthy natural tones and she immediately went about incorporating his work into the new room design.

You can find Cefyn’s work at his Studio in Ruthin, in Storiel Bangor or Plas Glyn y Weddw in Llanbedrog. With such strong links to the community he grew up in his work is sure to become a firm favourite of ours and of yours.
