Do you want to know how to make a bee skep, or find someone who knows about stone carving? This book contains a series of articles and interviews with current practitioners in a host of traditional or ancient skilled crafts, some of which have been rediscovered, such as flint-knapping, some of which are rare but becoming more popular, such as handweaving or working with willow, and some of which, like the gunsmith, have been around for a long time but, because they are so specialist or need such specific skills, not much is heard about them. I was impressed at the broad spectrum of crafts and skills illustrated. Apart from finding out about the personalities and why they became interested in making and designing for their individual crafts, a brief description of the methods used and ways of acquiring the skills is included. The book is well illustrated with photographs of the practitioners and their handiwork. It will interest anyone who is looking for an interest and those who are looking for contacts with skilled practitioners in almost any traditional skill you care to think of, who can pass on their skills.
