Bespoke is a thought-provoking look at the return and rise of the handmade, the locally produced, the small-scale and the artisanal.
Writer and presenter Marcus Westbury takes us on a journey from the lovingly crafted to cutting-edge technology – from artisanal jewelers and wood-turners to craft distillers and 3D printers, from Newcastle to New York – to answer the questions of who is making, why are so many of us making, who is buying and is it here to stay? Is it an old arts-and-crafts movement in hipster clothing, a passing fad? A middle-class indulgence? Or is it a new response to remake our cities, our economies and our communities from the top down and the bottom up?
