The Crafter Culture Handbook: Making it yourself

The Crafter Culture Handbook: Making it yourself

by Amy Spencer




This fun, new manual explores the crafting movement that is sweeping the globe, with a series of creative projects for all wannabe crafters. It contains designs by well-known crafters, including the people behind Subversive Stitching, microRevolt, Bazaar Bizarre, Cast Off, Thready Made, Craftivism, the Renegade Craft Fair, Church of Craft, and Made by Milla.

Amy Spencer gives practical advice and examines the politics behind the crafting trends. Crafters are aware of the impact of their actions and create as part of a radi-cal form of political protest. Through interviews with those involved, she explores these simple acts and their impact.
