British Folk Art

To celebrate the first major exhibition of British folk art, we sent a film crew around the country to capture the eccentricities and creative brilliance of folk culture today.
 
Tate Britain’s new exhibition introduces the extraordinary and surprising works of some of Britain’s unsung artists.  Steeped in tradition and often created by self-taught artists and artisans, the often humble but always remarkable objects on show include everything from ships‘ figureheads to quirky shop signs, Toby jugs to elaborately crafted quilts.
