Calling all film makers

Share

City:

 

Real to Reel, the UKs first film festival dedicated to craft returns to Picturehouse Central, London from 24 May 2017.

From documentaries to story-led films to animation were looking for films to screen that capture skill in action, unveil hidden processes and invite us to look again at materials and those who shape them.

Your film can be of any genre; it can be traditional or experimental, a few seconds or feature-length. Essentially we are interested in film-making that has a craft story to tell, so do feel free to surprise us.

Applications are now open to be part of the festival. Submit your films by 5pm on Monday 6 February 2017. www.craftscouncil.org.uk/r2r

Real to Real: The Craft Film Festival is produced by the Crafts Council and Crafts magazine.

Modern Twist: Steam bent furniture by Joshua Till

Share

Category:

Keywords:

Manchester Craft & Design Centres 2016MMU Graduate Awardwinner Joshua Till puts a contemporary twist on a traditional craft with his nature-inspired steam bent furniture.

Steam bending was once a vital practice, paramount to the production of weapons, tools and water vessels, but with the advance of technology it has become less common. Joshua is hoping to change all that by bringing this traditional process into the 21st Century.

As a low energy, environmentally responsible and economical method of manipulating wood, the technique has a lot of potential for experimentation and Joshua is taking full advantage of that fact to produce a new, exciting collection for his first ever solo exhibition.
