Read the Guardian article that is referenced:

a few quick excerpts:
"explore the idea of an expressive life" Bill Ivey

"rebirth of the arts and crafts movement as we search for quality of life"

"respect for nature, dignity of labour, importance of long-garnered skills,
access to beauty for all"

"craft is a slow pursuit"

like Julia's cooking

the result

is extraordinary and rewarding

"you cannot twitter a cushion cover"

"craft can be meditation"
& the polar opposite of the immediacy of the electronic age

Everyone shares the capacity to develop a skill,
based on decent teaching, application and time – not raw talent.

excerpts from the Libby Brooks in the Guardian
