Many of us will be excited to hear about a new venture between the V&A museum and BBC 4 on ‘Handmade in Britain’.

Here’s what the press release says:

Ceramics, metalwork, stained glass, textiles and woodwork are some of the most beautiful and treasured objects with pride of place in British palaces, churches, stately houses and family homes. Handmade In Britain brings these fascinating, functional and often forgotten works of art to the fore in a major new season of programming which will explore the history of British artistry and craftsmanship.

The BBC will be showing three three-part series plus several one-hour-long films and a programme of events at the V&A. Tune in this Autumn to find out more about ceramics, stained glass and Chinese porcelain in the first series.
