WATCH : ‘Art of Craft – Paper’ | CCTV9

We are part of a five-part series for CCTV9, China’s leading documentary channel.

First we see our artists and Peter doing yoga on the rooftop at sunset. Pre-lockdown when this was filmed we did yoga twice a week together. Now everyone has the option to do via Zoom at their own homes.

Leo and Jon working on a Churchill Globe – each gore is so big it takes two people to wet and stretch the delicate paper across the sphere.

Rodrigo is putting a layer of gloss on a 36cm Livingstone desktop globe as well as later when they were filming working on another 36cm globe.

This documentary was created by Beach House Pictures – one of Asia’s largest indies. The series explored the compelling human stories behind the world’s leading master craftsmen; a 23rd generation Venetian glass blower, an Indian Saree maker, an organ master from Montreal, a Chinese Master embroider who continues a centuries old technique, a family of violin makers who hold the secrets of the alchemy of wood and sound… and us.. Globemakers!

Art of Craft seeks out the authenticity, passion and unusual skill of these modern-day artists, following their pursuit of perfection. Interwoven with spectacular visuals of the artists’ intricate processes and intimate interviews, audiences are taken on a moving journey as they learn the backstories of these inspiring creators.
