Shaped On All Six Sides

Kat Gardiner’s film looks at what it means to be a craftsman in the 21st century from the view point of Andy Stewart, master boat builder.

In an age of automation and convenience, how do we value skill and authenticity? And what is it like to assemble a boat, whose precisely placed planks must survive the rigours of the violent sea?

"To build a wooden boat is the closest thing you can do to give life to an inanimate object," says builder Andy Stewart in this short documentary about the craft and philosophy of boat carpentry.
