Dove Palmer has a reputation for working with precision and focus. He is, after all, the founder of the International Precision Cutting Championships spread worldwide, and an educator of renown for his technique and education. But he’s also a creative soul.

It’s a fascinating combination. Listen to this podcast where he describes the journey for creating this collection, The Social, filmed by Sophie MacCorquodale @iamsophiemacc
