Craft Economies
Collapse All Sections

Craft Economies provides a wide-ranging exploration of contemporary craft production, situating practices of amateur and professional making within a wider creative economy. Contributors address a diverse range of practices, sites and forms of making in a wide range of regional and national contexts, from floristry to ceramics and from crochet to coding. The volume considers the role of digital practices of making and the impact of the maker’s movement as part of larger trends around customisation, on-demand production, and the possibilities of 3D printing and digital manufacturing.
