Published by NMS Enterprises Limited - Publishing on behalf of University of Dundee. The development of academic research has brought to the fore a new generation of craft practitioners and as a consequence new methods and methodologies, which are impacting on the way craft in the future will be perceived, marketed and purchased. Past, Present and Future Craft Practice explores new directions and perspectives in contemporary craft and exemplifies this step through a series of ten works. The book is based partly on a five-year-research project which posed the question: Is there a future role for craft? It is also based on the editors' work as craft practitioners - Louise Valentine's as a textile designer and Georgina Follett's as an enameller.
