UK artisans

Today I have something a little different for you. No embedded Youtube video, but rather a collection of slideshows about various artisans with their own voices dubbed over. They were made last year by Nick Hand as he cycled around the coast of the UK raising money for the Parkinson's Disease Society. There are over 70 slideshows, and I have only scratched at the surface so far, but thoroughly enjoyed the basketmaker, Old Town Outfitters (thanks to The Porridge Lady whose twittered about them today, setting me on this trail),  boat builder and Billy Bragg. An odd mixture, and there are plenty more.

Set aside an hour or two and enjoy!
