Crafty new TV series

Published: 10 July 2009
New reality programme to get the public back to basics with traditional and contemporary crafts.
TV Production company Ricochet is making a new six-part series on traditional and contemporary crafts for a major broadcaster this summer.

The series will feature episodes on six different types of craft - greenwood, thatching, stonemasonry, weaving, stained glass and metal work.

The production company has enlisted some of the UK's top mastercraftsmen from a variety of disciplines who will each mentor three eager trainees on an intensive training course.

If you're interested and passionate about learning the traditional skills of the blacksmith, have a passion for wood or any of the other skills listed above then contact the Mastercrafts team at Ricochet on 01273 224 800 or email

Ricochet is the maker of factual and documentary programming for major broadcasters both in the UK and US. It has produced series such as "No Going Back", "Supernanny" and "Born To Be Different".

More recent work includes the Bafta nominated 'Blood, Sweat and T-Shirts' for BBC3 and 'The Real Swiss Family Robinson' for BBC1.

Sounds a good idea but a great shame that pottery making - one of the oldest crafts - has not been included.
