Crafts July/ August issue has landed!

Summer has arrived! And with it, we welcome a new issue of Crafts.

On the cover, we feature the enigmatic work of Edinburgh-based glass and ceramic artist Andrea Walsh, one of twelve finalists for the prestigious Woman’s Hour Craft Prize.

Inside, to celebrate the opening of the Crafts Council’s new blockbuster exhibition States of Play in Hull, we invite the organisation’s creative director Annie Warburton to explore the relationship between playfulness and making, and visit one of the exhibiting artists, designer and maker Pascal Anson at his studio by the sea.

Also in this issue: artist Emma Hart’s inspirations; Jeremy Myerson, Konstantin Grcic and Sean Sutcliffe on the legacy of Parnham Furniture College; Studio Gutedort collaborate with female makers in Jordan; ceramic artist Phil Eglin’s latest work; Glenn Adamson reviews Rei Kawakubo at the Met and Tanya Harrod considers Eric Gill’s contentious legacy.
