Crafts is the world's leading magazine devoted to making.
Published six times a year by the Crafts Council UK, Crafts offers the latest news, reviews and opinion, alongside a selection of in-depth features, challenging essays and critical debate from the best writers in the business. Crafts champions high-quality contemporary craft practice nationally and internationally, as well as its impact on social, economic and cultural life.
The complete digital archive includes every issue of Crafts since 1973, providing readers with an unparalleled history of making; an essential resource for students, academics, researchers or anyone with an interest in craft.
In the latest issue, we discuss the politics of pattern with contemporary artist Yinka Shonibare, whose new show Criminal Ornamentation sets out to disprove Adolf Loos’ historical condemnation of decoration.
We celebrate the sensibilities of 3D printing with design duo Wang & Söderström, investigate the revival of Murano glass, and meet the makers behind a cutting-edge range of knives that have British chefs queuing up.
Plus, potter James Campbell’s tribute to his late friend and ceramist Mo Jupp; the amazing works of Lindsey Mendick; our Christmas Gift Guide; and Cynthia Corbett on championing emerging artists from her home-cum-gallery.
