Power of Making

Presented in a beautiful three screen panorama, Power of Making is a short film that demonstrates the skill of a group of crafts people in a highly compelling and almost voyeuristic way.

As they focus on their projects in the vibrant noise of their work space, you get a truly tangible sense of the physical process of creating an object, from bespoke leather shoes to hand beaten car bodies.

As a consumer society, the vast majority have become divorced of a sense of where objects come from and have ceased to comprehend that people of these shores have any part in their creation.

Well, the British Crafts-Designer-Maker is alive and well...
