default Carved with Love: The Genius of British Woodwork

Post by Chilli-head on 8th January 2013, 2:15 pm

At last, some promising sounding TV, and that it is on BBC4 is a good sign, even better that it is in partnership with the V&A museum. We seem to very rarely get craftmanship of any sort on TV these days, so I'll be putting this one on series record.

There are 3 to catch:

The Genius of British Woodwork: The Extraordinary Thomas Chippendale
The Genius of British Woodwork: The Glorious Grinling Gibbons
The Genius of British Woodwork: The Divine Art of Carpentry

Oooooooo, thank you Chilli Head. I shall look forward to watching those (I assume they are available on the i player). I remember seeing some absolutely stunning woodcarving on a visit to Petworth House some years ago. Turned out to be Grinling Gibbons - I had heard the name before, but had no idea what he did.
