Book Description

17 Oct 2011
The first decade of the 21st century was a time of huge change. As globalization became a day-to-day reality, a small group of people turned away from the ready-made, mass-produced culture that had been so prevalent since the 1950s, and found instead a means of self-expression through handmade and recycled objects. Starting with knitting, the craft revolution revived the dying arts of crochet, embroidery, bricolage and macramé, and slowly gained confidence and momentum, seeping from the fringes of society into the mainstream. VictoriaWoodcock and Ziggy Hanaor collaborated on Making Stuff, one of the first alternative craft books to hit the shelves back in 2005. State of Craft shakes things up once again, taking a glossy, sexy approach to the subject. The book features interviews and contributions from all the hottest craft megastars including Tatty Devine, Urban Cross Stitch, Prick Your Finger and DIY Couture. Clearly explained, step-by-step craft ideas range from homemade underwear to pompom headbands and pincushions made from vintage crockery. Craft has inspired a whole generation of hipsters, and has come a long way in the past ten years. State of Craft is here to bring it all up to date.

5.0 out of 5 stars State of Craft - 5* 2 Nov 2011
Probably the best craft book on the market. It's about time someone put together a book that does away with all the retro trappings, silly self-effacing cartoons and curly text and just focussed on explaining how to make really cool things in a clear, coherent and attractively presented manner. Nice illustration and photography too. Lovely. A great Christmas present - or just a present to self.

2.0 out of 5 stars Dissapointing 18 Jan 2012
By Mana
When I ordered this book I expected to have lots of exciting things to make, I was very dissapointed.
While there is some interesting interviews/articles a lot of the items are so ridiculous you would never waste
your time making them. Animal ears for cyclists? Moustache Design? Paintbrush scarf? Seriously??? Its the kind
of book that thinks its much cooler than it actually is.
Save your pennies!!

Bought as a birthday present for someone else but I had a look through and it looked fab! The ideas for crafting with the kids and for making accessories for fitness items were excellent!

5.0 out of 5 stars Crafty collective 14 April 2012
By wimcee
Loved this book! - inspirational on two levels: projects and people! Sometimes these sorts of compilation style reviews are way too light-weight, but this has some new skills (for me), detailed instructions, and interesting twists on old favourites. Such a good balance of projects and in-depth interviews, and plenty of links for further reading on-line. Really generous - thank-you!
