Making harps is an ancient and time honoured tradition in Wales. Indeed, Wales is known as the Land of the Harp. Nestled deep in the Welsh valleys, we at Telynau Teifi are globally respected in how we carry on the Welsh history and tradition of harp making and their enchanting sounds. We make harps using craftsmanship that has been handed down through generations, from master harp makers to their apprentices.
The company was founded by the acclaimed harp maker Allan Sheirs, apprentice to the late renowned John Weston Thomas. With funding from the European Union in 2004 we purchased a Victorian school by the River Teifi. Our ambition is to secure the harp making traditions of Wales for future generations. Here at the Harp Centre of Wales we combine the secrets of generations with innovative technology and materials such as titanium and carbon fibre.
Our instruments are distinguished by their exceptional sound quality and sought after by harpists worldwide. They sing like the songbirds that lend their names to our harps.
