MAKER OF THE DAY

Caroline Brogden - Contemporary Jewellery

Bold and bright coastal inspired jewellery. Hand carved from surplus resin (known as Surfite), a by-product of custom surfboard production. Precious metal elements add structure and form to the pieces.

Caroline works solely with British custom surfboard shapers to keep the carbon-footprint of the material as low as possible. All the waste material is purchased to create a circular sustainable economy.

    The Capital of Craft Podcast with Alex Finberg

    The Capital of Craft 20th Anniversary of Craft Festival Season

    To celebrate the 20th Anniversary of Craft Festival Bovey Tracey in June, here is the 4th season of The Capital of Craft hosted by me, Sarah James MBE. I am the director of Craft Festival and Find a Maker.

    Alex Finberg was the recipient of Craft Festival's Making It Award 2023 and debuted at Craft Festival Bovey Tracey that year.

    In our podcast we find out more about his career. Trained in psychology, his entry into woodworking came about from working on therapeutic projects. I loved learning more about Alex's life and his passion for the outdoors.

    He talks with me from his Devon home.
