Crafts 287 – Making that moves
Crafts magazine is the only British magazine to cover all craft forms from studio work to public commissions from modern experimental work to traditional and historic designs.
Crafts 287 – Making that moves | March/April 2021
Crafts 287 – Making that moves | In this issue, Crafts explores the notion of movement – something we took for granted before the pandemic confined us to our homes. We examine the textile dreamscapes of artist Jordan Nassar, whose work meditates on migration and what it means to be born into a diaspora, and we investigate the art of bespoke bicycle-making.
Meanwhile, author Anthony Horowitz muses on the mechanical magic of automata, and the Handspring Puppet Company tells us how it is pulling the strings of an ambitious travelling art festival evoking the refugee experience.
Our March/April issue also spotlights the artists making their debut at Collect – the international art fair for contemporary craft and design – as well as the makers at this year’s virtual event who are pushing the sculptural possibilities of paper.
This special issue also includes the Collect 2021 catalogue: the tangible, physical way to explore the digital edition of the fair.
