Meet The Shopkeeper Of The New Craftsmen, The Real British Souvenir Shop – Forbes

Lansky Sharpeners Partners with World-Renowned Knifemaker Mikkel Willumsen

So she left her job and went on a road trip around Britain, meeting people who made things, understanding what was still out there. Everything from workshops left over from the Sheffield steel industry to basket makers in Orkney. Some of these artisans can barely make a living, even though they have an extraordinary knowledge and expertise in crafts that may be dying out. It would be such a shame to lose the skills that are so much a part of our cultural heritage.
