Videos, artists, interviews and lots of craft – Those Who Make is brilliant

Posted by Anya Lawrence,

While we are well aware that the very concept of Those Who Make – a collection of videos capturing artists at what they do best (designing and making) – is nothing new, we are also well aware of just how great this version is.

Curating and nicely enlightening the world with a carefully considered selection of interviews and video insights into the compassion and intricacies involved in making wonderful things, the Those Who Make site is well worth a look.

It’s the range of content together with the no-fuss simplicity of the website is what makes Those Who Make great. One minute you are watching designer John Cho Moore chip away at a piece of bamboo as he talks about his love of materials that “have good stories”, the next you are watching a man called Henry talk about the art of blending coffee.

So if it is bamboo, pottery, violin-making or just one or two wise words that you are looking for – or even if you are not – make sure you stop off at Those Who Make and indulge in a video or two.
