Rural craftswomen and craftsmen

5 craftsmen and women from farms in South Tyrol make unique pieces of art

Using raw materials grown entirely on farms in South Tyrol, five rural craftsmen and women produce a variety of precious individual pieces under the brand 'Roter Hahn'.

Woodcarving

An artistic hand-crafted item, as varied as the wood itself. Woodcarving has a long tradition in South Tyrol. When winters were cold, farmers used to spend lots of time carving wood in the warm ‘Stube’, and the love of woodcarving is carried on from generation to generation still today. The wood is transformed into real works of art using carving knives and chisels. These amazing one-off items from the farm are convincing proof of how creative woodcarving can be. The love for detail may be felt in these hand-made unique items fashioned with patience and finesse.

Woodturning

The piece being worked on the constantly humming woodturning lathe is starting to take shape. A one-off artwork is in the making. The art of woodturning is precision work, whereby wood is skillfully chipped away at, resulting in a work of art. Inspired by the colours and shape of the wood, this handcraft throws up individual and modern creations. This is how unique pieces come into being that enhance their surroundings: vases or bowls, as well as fruit, spheres and fine jewellery made of wood. Lots of hours of work and passion lie behind these hand-made pieces.

Weaving

Bendy twigs are turned into artistic one-off items with skillful handiwork. Carefully, each twig is wound around the basic weaving frame. This does not just require lots of strength and stamina, but also skill and a certain knack. Techniques handed down through the ages are successfully combined with new and innovative ideas to create works of art in various forms. From handy baskets to decorative, delicate woven objects such as bowls, lanterns and bags – there’s no end to the scope for creativity.

Working with old wood

Recognising and appreciating the beauty of nature and what it gives us: every piece of old wood has a unique form, has been weathered by sun and rain and has its own story to tell. A particular use can be found for carefully chosen wood in a creative manner. Anyone making something out of old wood has the goal of bringing out the special character of every piece. These artistic creations are just as unique as the materials themselves. Whether figures, bowls, candle holders, wooden lanterns or storm lamps – beautiful unique items may be fashioned with careful handwork.

Crocheting

Crochet hooks, thread, scissors and genuine sheep’s wool from South Tyrol. The art of crocheting has gone on for generations and is still being passed onto children and grandchildren. There are plenty of unique ways to create artistically crocheted items – from using different patterns to varying materials and shapes. Clothes and rugs, as well as soft cushions and blankets, are rustled up with lots of skill and creativity. It’s not only hours of work, but also lots of love for handcrafts and tradition that go into each of the textile items that farmers make at the farm.
