It was lights, camera action last week as Axminster tools finished filming at our workshop for their popular Meet the Makers series.
When Joshua was researching workshops from Hawaii where we lived before we moved here, he found a perfect shop on Hunthay Farm in Axminster and I remember the moment he came and told me excitedly that it was 'down the road' from Axminster Tools.
Their reputation is apparently rather far reaching!
Having them close at hand when we were setting up the shop was invaluable, and when Axminster Tools MD Alan Styles got in touch and asked if we would like to take part in the Meet the Makers series, looking at how we craft our Shepherd Huts, we were exceptionally flattered as the series has focused on exceptionally talented and successful makers in the UK such as Sitting Spiritually who we admire who craft very beautiful swing seats.
The film crew came over a number of weeks, focussing on Joshua crafting different aspects of the hut.
They were all a jolly nice bunch and made the whole process fun and unobtrusive and we feel very privileged to have been asked.
