Made in Montreal Documentary S1E2

Here in the MileEnd we have the highest number or artists per capita in all of Canada. The neighbourhood, which was once home to a thriving textile industry, has since become the home base for for artists and makers of all kinds. We moved our workshop here 4 years ago to be part of the community and learn the tricks of the trade from peers. 

The documentary series Made in Montreal tours the city discovering neighbourhood to find the makers and see what makes them tick. In S1E2 they venture to the MileEnd and stopped by our workshop to talk with Oopsmark founder (Jesse Herbert) about what it's like to be a maker here in Montreal. They also met with locals; black smith Jacques Gallant and fashion designer Jennifer Glasgow.

So, have a listen to the conversation with Alex Carruthers about being a maker and get a sneak peak into our leather workshop where we handmake bicycle wine racks and have a scrap parties.

Oopsmark is at 16:42, but i highly recommend watching the whole thing.
