Galician hurdy-gurdies.

Heart of Craftsmanship. Artisans Fair

This past weekend we had an artisans fair in Os Pendellos de A Golada (Galicia), an unbeatable place to hold an artisans fair of this type.

I leave you a video with some of the artisans that I could see working in this craft fair. The sound … what better than that of the tools modifying the shapes of the materials.

I also put some photos of different objects made of wood, although the truth is that there were craftsmen of all kinds: forging, leather goods, basketry, patchwork, making musical instruments, carpentry, jewelry, sale and tasting of typical Galician products, workshops for children, lectures …

One of the artisans who attracted the most attention in this edition of this craft fair was Arturo Iglesias with his pedal lathe, a lathe very requested for demonstrations that I believe works in the ethnographic museum of Grandas de Salime.

You can see more photos and find more information about the artisans we saw in this fair in Artesanía de Galicia and in the facebook page of Fundación Centro Galego da Artesanía e do Deseño.
