Ok, so this is really last Friday’s #VendrediVideo in disguise, but that doesn’t matter… as I’ve got three great little videos for you.
First up I found that this one just made me smile.
28 is a chandelier designed and hand made in Canada.
Design by Omer Arbel for Bocci.
Video by Gwenael Lewis for New Document.
Music composed by Edo Van Breemen.
100% made in Vancouver Canada.
I really liked a line in this next video “…you actually have to go do it, it just takes time, it takes…experience, and there’s no substitute for that” as that really resonates with the reasoning behind our open workshop – by creating a place for you to practice you’ll get better and develop your skills, that’s how it works, practice makes perfect.
For over 30 years, Joe Elliott has forged fine ironwork by hand from his shops in Central Oregon. A true craftsman, he is a master blacksmith—one of the few remaining who practice this ancient trade.
Finally a frame building video, and another great line… “..we wanted to create the company that we ultimately wanted to work for…”. This is true of The Bicycle Academy, and more than that we’re also creating the frame building school that we would love to attend ourselves.
