Crafting up a new initiative

(Premium content) Premium content

The most active arts community isn't where you think it is, and they are finding new direction.

What would you say is the state of health of Australian craft/design? Recent ABS research tells us that it is the most popular form of active cultural engagement for the Australian community with about 1.7 million people involved in “textile crafts, jewellery making, paper or wood crafts” and another quarter million doing “glass crafts, pottery, ceramics or mosaics”. The stats also show that craft is almost as popular as all the performing arts put together.
