So my talented photographer friend Matthew Cleveland has just embarked on a photography project photographing local craftsmen doing their thing…. In his own words “Craftsmen is a project celebrating the skill of those who work with their hands. Creating objects from raw materials which inspire, intrigue and quite simply improve our lives.

To start the project he asked my most favourite craftsman, my man, Mr Maxwell Hyde.

Maxwell is a talented carpenter and shipwright and is currently restoring his 1955 wooden clinker boat called Hesperus…

You can check out Matt’s other (incredibly good) work here, and see the original post on the project here.

Here are my 20 favourite pics….
