In the Maker's Hands - Louise Pocock

As part of our recent show Crafts Alive - In the Maker’s Hands at Rodmarton Manor we asked makers to share their favourite tools with us.

Louise Pocock is a milliner whose practice is based in the Malvern hills. She shares a little about her favourite and why it special to her.
