Crafted: A compendium of crafts – new, old and forgotten
by Sally Coulthard
Crafted is a celebration of craft in the 21st century – a definitive visual guide to all things handmade. Best-selling author and designer, Sally Coulthard, explores their history, materials and techniques as she offers a deeper insight into both new and ancient creative pursuits.
After an introductory section covering the culture of craft (its definition, why it matters, history and community), the main body of the book consists of beautifully illustrated entries on 73 of the world's most popular and established crafts.
The scope is encyclopaedic and covers Paper, Pen & Print (bookbinding, origami, calligraphy, lino printing), Textiles, Cloth & Leather (fur & leather, embroidery, knitting, dyeing), Pottery, Glass & Stone (porcelain, stained glass, stone carving), Wood, Willow & Nature (basket weaving, wood carving, lime plastering and thatching) and Metal (gold, bronze, cast iron and steel).
A comprehensive directory of craft organisations, and professional communities and guilds, completes this ground-breaking compendium.
