Handmade in Hull

In 2017 Linda worked with BBC4 & Thirteen Ways to share her research of The Tool Appreciation Society Exhibition and to introduce both her artistic work and the people in Hull she had spent many months getting to know.  This resulted in a 45min documentary shown on the BBC in Nov 2017 which has gone on to win multiple awards.

A visually stunning tribute to Hull’s craft traditions, produced in collaboration with artist Linda Brothwell as part of Hull City of Culture 2017. The film profiles the artisans whose skills put Hull on the map in Britain’s industrial heyday, from the compass-maker whose precision-crafted instruments helped steer Hull’s fishing fleet to boat builders and woodcarvers, all reflecting on the joys of their craft and its role in the city’s past. A heartfelt and evocative portrait of Hull’s great industrial heritage and the people who helped create it.
