The Workshop

How to reborn crafts?

With the emergence of industry, craftsmanship and its associated knowledge have moved towards irrelevance in society. Because of the compartmentalization of the production process, craftsmen’s skills are reduced to a limited task. Crafts and industry are supposed to be antagonistic and yet, we are losing innovation and experimentation.

Imagine a world where craftsmen create new challenges for machines and not the opposite. By editing a book sharing the knowledge I gathered about craftsmanship, I propose tools based on three values to highlight: collaboration, curiosity and uniqueness. This book aims at supporting a new era of crafts collaboration and experimentation by triggering the imagination of the reader.
