Celebrating traditional crafts, Bill Bailey’s Master Crafters: The Next Generation, will spotlight the stellar work of expert crafts professionals across Britain and follow junior crafters as they refine their skills.

The show will also highlight the work of The Prince’s Foundation in supporting new generations of crafters and keeping traditional building skills alive as a key part of our national and international heritage.
Phil Edgar-Jones, Director of Sky Arts and Entertainment said: "We have a range of treats for our loyal Sky Arts lovers over the next few months, whether they want to argue over the best guitar riffs, marvel at the hidden symbols in JMW Turner’s paintings or spend quality time with a rock legend or two. Joan Jett to Mavis Staples and everything in between."
Bill Bailey’s Master Crafters: The Next Generation is produced by Spun Gold TV.
