I have to say I was disappointed by the BBC's decision to not commission a second series of Mastercrafts. I say that not because I was a mentor on Series 1 but because I really do believe in craftsmanship, and Series 1 was a big step forward in showing to the public at large the pleasures to be had in all the crafts featured - not just green woodworking.
There is a Facebook Group set up specifically about this development
and if you, like me, feel passionate about craftsmanship then perhaps you'll make your views known.
You can also read more about the issue (no Facebook participation required!), here:
at UK Handmade.
