The Book of Forgotten Crafts: Keeping the Traditions Alive
Over the last years the interest in traditional trades and crafts grew constantly. People are looking for sustainability and a more rewarding and fulfilling lifestyle. The Book of Forgotten Crafts matches those interests and reveals the fascinating history of British craftsmanship in a series of interviews with leading crafters at work in Britain today. Many crafts survive in the hands of just a few individuals whose rare skills date back as far as 1,000 years! They are part of our history, part of a past of craftsmanship, skill and attention to detail that most of us probably thought had vanished forever. Each interview is accompanied by beautiful illustrations, demonstrating many key craft techniques such as basket weaving, chip carving and how to assemble a chair. It also includes the mentors from the Mastercrafts television series. The Book of Forgotten Crafts records and celebrates the best of these ancient crafts, before they disappear and, more importantly, to record the lives of the crafters themselves. The Book of Forgotten Crafts Facts:The Cooper: For the trial period and the first two years of your apprenticeship you are not allowed to use any electrical tools. The Millwright: I reckon that there are about a dozen millwrights left in the UK and perhaps half still do some millstone dressing professionally. The Blacksmith: I made bronze lamps and handrailing for the Queen Mother s memorial in the Mall. The Goldsmith: She has made silver crosses for Bishop Tutu and the Archbishop of Wales, and 100% Welsh gold dragon cufflinks for Prince Charles. The Dyer & Felt Maker: You never know quite what will emerge and that s the exciting part! The Thatchers: People were suspicious of us wanting to use this traditional method when they didn t know what the roof would look like or how long it would last. The Bagpipe Maker: Pipe making involves so many skills there s leather work, woodwork and wood turning as well as tuning and, of course, playing. It even involves musical and social history.
