A group of jewellery students from across London have made a film with digital:works focusing on the fascinating, hidden history of Hatton Garden in Central London. This area has been the centre of London's jewellery trade since the 18th century.
The participants have learnt about this history through a short series of talks and walks through the area before going on to meet the many crafts men and women working in the maze of workshops and shops in the area, many dating back several generations.
digital:works made this documentary film with children from Servite Primary School. The film is based on Michael Foreman's book of the same name and looks at football's place in World War One.
digital:works worked with young people from four schools who made films about their local street markets. They interviewed traders and shoppers to explore the history of the markets.
digital:works developed this film with residents living on Rowley Way Estate. The intention of the film was to allow residents to explore the ideas behind the design of the estate and to examine people's experience of living there.
