Crafts Issue No. 274 September/October 2018
Inside, we celebrate the opening of Anni Albers at London’s Tate Modern with a special 14-page section. Tanya Harrod investigates the textile artist’s legacy; Martina Margetts remembers meeting her in 1985, and we re-print her original interview from the archives.
Also, we pay a visit to maker-in-wood Eleanor Lakelin ahead of a major international craft exhibition in Venice. Ceramist Hitomi Hosono talks to us as about joining forces with British manufacturing giants Wedgwood. And, with plastic dominating the headlines this summer, we look at James Shaw’s innovative uses for the controversial material.
Plus, Glenn Adamson on how Jes Fan makes work that is free of male/female binaries; this issue’s Talent Spot Alice Potts combines fashion with science to extraordinary effect; our LDF preview; and Tanya Harrod on the role of craft in the community.
