The selection of films encompasses a broad range of craft, design and making disciplines presented in mini documentaries, story-led artist profiles to ingenious animations and music video.
Selected from near and far, the films spotlight the everyday habits and skills of ‘makers and smiths’, they reveal what drives enduring professional practice, and illustrate a diversity in film-making creativity as much as the traditional and contemporary craft approaches.
Disciplines and techniques include:
Basketry, Ceramic Art + Pottery, Costume Design + Making, Fibre Art, Glassmaking, Jewellery + Metalsmithing, Pearl Carving, Puppet Making, Screen + Block Printing, Sound Design + Making, Stop Motion Animation, Textiles, Weaving, and Zoetropes.
The 24 short films are shown in two sessions, choose to go to one or both. Each session is approximately 1 hour 20 minutes long.
