Nautical Threads project film

Schools and arts award

Ewan Golder has done a brilliant job with the Nautical Threads project film, which you can watch here.

In the words of Petra Matthews Crow: “Ewan’s fabulous film has captured so many gorgeous moments that happened throughout this year long project. His layering of imagery, synonymous to the layering of history, in which our town and nautical history abounds, is a wonderful device, mirroring visually aspects of our cultural and historical past. The celebration of Dover’s nautical connections, which was the basis of this project, is reflected through the workshops Ewan recorded, and captures the pleasure and learning that took place in schools and in the coming together of the wider community to celebrate this broad, collaborative project, in the very place that inspired its concept. I feel privileged to have been a part of Nautical Threads and am thrilled with Ewan’s depiction of what transpired throughout the year.”
