3 comments on “Craft Fetishism or A Return to Craft Values? – EDIT

  1. Great article. I think crafting definitely has the ability to ground consumer culture and shift it from mindless and ultimately unsatisfying endeavour to a more thoughtful engagement that offers meaning and worth to both producers and consumers. They offer stories that are rooted in reality and not ideals, and their uniqueness and added price can discourage people from adopting a disposable mentality. When replacement is not a viable option, people will hopefully take care to repair and maintain the items.
