In the fourth issue of CAMEo Cuts, Julia Bennett explores the UK craft economy.
She begins with a reflection on the rich and diverse history of craft in London, and outlines some of the challenges now being faced by its contemporary makers and designers. In the second part, she outlines the key role played by the Crafts Council in supporting production, education and innovation in the crafts sector, at the local, regional and national level.
