The saying goes that it never rains, but it pours. Today feels like one of those days here because so many seeds that we have been planting over the past nine months or so have suddenly sprouted and come into flower. Back in September last year James was in front of the camera being filmed for Clarks Shoes who were making a series of web shorts about “The Art of Craft”, with each episode featuring one of their craftsmen and a subject from another, similar discipline. They drew a parallel between the work of their “Last Makers”, who make the wooden moulds that they form each shoe over, and our work here making wooden surfboards. We’re really pleased with how the video came out and it’s lovely to be asked to feature in projects such as this that celebrate products that are handmade here in the UK. You can watch the video here on our new vimeo channel where there are a couple of other short videos to keep you entertained.
