Crafts Issue No. 257 November / December 2015
Crafts prepares for the festive season.
Our Christmas cover star Edmund de Waal talks about life after his bestselling memoire as well as the pleasures and pains of porcelain. Martino Gamper explains why he’s touring the UK with a miniature festival or making and mending. We celebrate Portuguese crochet crusader Joana Vasconcelos, Sam Jacob asks if souvenirs are tat or treasure and Laura Ellen Bacon tells us what it’s like to make in the public eye.
And we get festive with our Christmas Gift Guide. Some of our favourite makers share what they’ll be giving this December and we round-up the best fairs, shows and books to help with your festive shopping.
