Yesterday was my first proper day making in I don’t like to think how long. I was half way through a board of 12oz jugs when I had a knock at the door and met a German gentleman by the name of Dieter who is a film maker. He told me he is making a film about traditional craftspeople who live as he put it, on the edges of Europe, and he was recommended to visit me by a basket maker friend of mine, Geoff. Could he do some filming now? Well slightly taken aback, I know it’s hard to believe but it isn’t every day that I get film makers turning up on my doorstep. Just carry on doing what you’re doing he said and he’d work around me. So I did and I made another board of jugs and some mugs and slipped some waiting tiles and generally carried on and wittered away as I usually would. We spent a pleasant few hours, had lunch in the sunshine and then he was off on his way. Heaven only knows where that film might end up!
