A brief story about the art and crafts of the Cantabrian forefathers and their successors. From the creation and development of cowbells to traditional albarca shoes and working with coal, the film takes a journey through the history and origin of how the crafts have been woven into the history and cultural identity of the people and gives an insight into how the business is kept alive within the community. Master Craftsmen of Cantabria highlights the importance of honouring traditions and preserving past time treasures, especially in a time when festivals and tradition remain a vital aspect of maintaining a long-lasting cultural footprint.
