Bethan Griffiths, director of The Ironwork Studio, is a specialist designer and consultant in decorative architectural ironwork. Her passion for metalwork, especially blacksmithing, developed while studying for her BA in Three-Dimensional Design, has led to her being involved in a wide range of prominent projects.
Bethan’s portfolio ranges from elegant new designs to heritage conservation, uniting her design training with a thorough understanding of metalwork gained through workshop experience. Her enthusiasm for ironwork has led to her actively support of the craft by serving on the council for the British Artist Blacksmith Association (BABA) and becoming a founding member and Trustee of the National Heritage Ironwork Group (NHIG). Her work with the NHIG has led to her playing a key role in the development of training and guidelines for heritage ironwork.
