The Barrel House and The Cooper's Cart
My name is Marla Bradford and I am a cooper, otherwise known as a barrel maker. I have developed the love of hand carving on wood, barrel heads, signage and such, as well as some painted art.
Along with my husband, we trained as coopers together and now I enjoy making crafts and wood furniture from wood and old barrels, while also carving wood plaques, and more.
I will supply and re-cooper barrels from the same barn my husband Pete and I built barrels in; the old cooperage at Kinsip House of Fine Spirits of Bloomfield Ontario.
Please come see me if you find yourself in the area.
