The Last of the Clog Makers

This great little video has been making the rounds recently. It’s a mini feature about Jeremy Atkinson and apprentice JoJo Wood. Atkinson is the only living clog maker still practicing his craft in England, and he’s passing on his knowledge to apprentice JoJo Wood. (JoJo is a talented wood carver in her own right.)

The only way traditional skills such as these stay alive is through actual use and practice! Sad to think that this once widely practiced craft is on the utter brink of extinction. I’ve never tried on a pair of clogs before, but I must say that I’m inspired now.
