Bespoke is an engaging, amusing, irreverent but ultimately thought-provoking look at the rise of the handmade, bespoke, locally produced and artisinal.

From Tasmanian producer, Annie Venables and her company, Viking Films, this series takes writer and presenter, Marcus Westbury from Newcastle to New York, from artisinal jewellers and wood-turners to craft distillers and 3D printers.

Marcus wants to find out why so many of us are making, who is buying, and whether this phenomenon is here to stay. Is this an old arts and crafts movement in hipster clothing, or are we experiencing a profound cultural and technological shift that could remake our cities, our economies and our communities?

In three episodes, Marcus explores how genuine makers strike a balance between affordability and authenticity, and asks, how big can you grow without losing something essential? He explores a movement that has been called 'the next industrial revolution' and unpacks the hype from the truly revolutionary potential.
