Description

In reaction against the global spread of digitisation and de-skilling, there has, in recent years, been a strong renewal of interest in the idea of `craftsmanship'- meaning skill, care, specialisation, making things, tacit knowledge, satisfaction, the close relationship between people and the work they do. This renewal of interest is not about nostalgia-the myth of the happy artisan, the Victorian Arts and Crafts movement-but about giving value to productive work in the contemporary urban world.
