  • Forge & Carve

    With knowledge passed down through the centuries, the presence of traditional crafts such as spoon carving, leather working, and knife making is becoming more and more pronounced in contemporary culture and on platforms such as social media and e-commerce. As the pressures of a fast-paced, modern-day life weigh on people, many seek solace in more manual, artful practices that take us out of ourselves and produce something beautiful and useful. Forge & Carve looks at eighteen crafters and how and why they create the items they do. From basket weaver to blacksmith, from potter to bowyer, meet some of the talented people behind this revival of time-honoured techniques and discover how they make a living from their artistry. Admire their craftsmanship; share their enthusiasm; and learn from their philosophy.
