Arts Market

Today we hosted our charade. We set up a craft stall in a design establishment and the products sold like hotcakes.
What does this prove? Craft is popular. Nothing we sold today had a powerful statement to announce; it was either useful or beautiful. Something that is perceived to be useful or beautiful must be designed. Whatever is designed to be useful or beautiful must be crafted. In our eyes, the two are synonymous, it's just that craft is perceived to be something else...something it's not.

"Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful." William Morris

Yes. You're in the right place.

Oh dear. If you were looking for a cupcake-eating bunny embroidered on a cloud you'd be better off visiting Etsy and leaving us to it.

We are designers who craft. If you are interested in what this means, watch this space. In the mean time you might want to check out the concept of Craftivism for an insight into what we're on about.
