In today’s society, how often do people make things with their hands, without the intervention of technology in some way? ‘Handmade’ explores this idea through the work of three creative artists based in South Devon who are all committed to creating with their hands. Each artist shares a dedication to their work, seeing it not as a job but as a lifestyle and way to live out their passions. Art has the power to motivate or move those who experience it and this documentary film explores the joy, struggles and the process of the work that these people produce along with the effect it has on their lives and happiness.
