The Old Crafts - in Somerset

2019 - 22

This is Kate’s current project. She is visiting over 20 craftspeople, making paintings and drawings of them at work, and collecting their personal stories and descriptions of their craft. Crafts and trades included: blacksmiths, farriers, cidermaking, dry stone walling, hedgelaying, thatching, bee skep making, glass blowing, sheep shearing, wood firing potters, stone carving and others…

The collection, with accompanying book, will be launched at the Somerset Rural Life Museum in Glastonbury in Spring 2022.
