Short film profiling Jeremy Atkinson who is England's last remaining traditional hand crafted clog maker.

From his small workshop in Kington in the West Country, Jeremy makes clogs for clients around the world.

In the film Jeremy tells us that he has spent 30 years trying to resurrect the craft, but it is hard to make any living, and he asks "Is it valid to spend Government money on that? You expect to pay for the arts. Other countries pay for crafts; they pay people to continue doing these things... in order to keep that skill alive?
