Hands: Curraghs - Traditional Irish seacraft 1978

Hands was a great Irish television program produced by David and Sally Shaw-Smith. The Shaw-Smith's presented traditional Irish crafts, from the weaving of crioses (colorful wool belts) and the making of pampooties (moccasin-type shoes) on the Aran Islands, to the creation of items as varied as harps and candles, curraghs, drystone walls and Irish lace.
