I am always looking for good YouTube or other documentaries on PBS to watch while I work putting threads into kits or embroidering for instructions. Yesterday I came upon a nice 2.5 hour documentary on YouTube I thought I would pass on.
I love seeing artisans who make things be profiled. You get to appreciate the work that goes into their craft and understand why something is valued (or should be valued). It also serves as a top level documentation of their processes.
For some reason, Business Insider has been doing this for a long time with documentary crews going to different parts of the world to record the 'last of'. Their series is called "Still Standing" and this is the playlist of amazing traditional crafts and their stories of the people keeping the tradition alive as well as documenting the process.
You can see a lovely short documentary about his work here. It was fabulous to see the entire process that day and film it. But the conversations after were priceless. What a lovely and wonderful family as well. I purchased gold and silver leaf for my casket feet and can't wait to gild them to have special memories of the people who made the material incorporated into my casket.
