This is the story of JoJo Wood, a young apprentice, learning the craft of Clog making. Often this type of trade is forgotten in our modern way of life, but "these crafts are a living connection with our past".
Jeremy Atkinson is the last traditional Clog Maker in England, he is running out of time and needs to pass his skills on. "There are seed banks all over the world to keep different things alive because maybe they will need to be used in the future, you could say the same thing about crafts because you don't know what's coming up".
Jonny Kinkead, is one of the finest Luthier's in England. As a five year old boy, his father, a traditional tool maker, taught him how to work with wood. Ever since then he has developed a passion in building beautiful custom made guitars.
