Go behind the doors of Britain’s workshops and factories to meet the makers creating new icons or reimagining traditional ones.
In their pursuit of perfection, the makers offer plenty of lessons – not just in how to create something beautiful, but lessons in the power of optimism, the importance of failure, and our search for that most prized possession, happiness.
From the mills hidden in plain sight, to the manufacturers sitting at the heart of our communities, we go through the factory gates to ask what personal lessons are welded, woven, and boiled into British-made products.
