About this book

Craft and the Creative Economy examines the place of craft and making in the contemporary cultural economy, with a distinctive focus on the ways in which this creative sector is growing exponentially as a result of online shopfronts and home-based micro-enterprise, 'mumpreneurialism' and downshifting, and renewed demand for the handmade.

Reviews

“Craft and the Creative Economy … considers the recent rise of craft and what obstacles and opportunities it presents for the contemporary cultural economy. … It will be of interest to a wide range of scholars researching craft in areas including cultural studies, gender studies, economics and labour studies, cultural and economic policy and development, craft theorists. It will also make salutary reading for those engaged in a craft economy that this book forensically describes.” (Catharine Rossi, International Journal of Cultural Policy, Vol. 22 (3), 2016)
