Film: Huck celebrates the craftsmanship on show at Lovenskate’s London studio

This year HUCK magazine have been on a bit of an adventure, hunting down the men and women of surf and skate who make their living with their own two hands; stitching, shaping, whittling and painting until they’ve got a final product that’s like nothing else out there. The project is titled The Working Artisans Club and currently consists of a handful of videos that go behind the scenes with a small selection of these talented folks.

Our favourite so far features the inner workings of The Mangle Studio and its proprietor, Stu Smith of Lovenskate. Stu’s a screen printer extraordinaire and all-round nice guy who has an obsession with creating beautiful hand-printed boards that he sends out into the world to be destroyed. It’s a non-sensical labour of love, but someone’s got to do it.
