Interview

I've been lucky enough to interview a selection of people about the kinds of things they make and their workshops. Just regular people with interesting workshops, professions or hobbies have taken time to chat about their tools and projects. The interviews were all conducted over email as a collaboration between myself and the makers, repairers and artists. The interviews are a friendly chat to find out what people are making, how they are made and of course how their workshops are setup. If you would like to be interviewed then please get in contact.
