In recent years there has been a resurgence in the interest in traditional handicrafts such as dressmaking or knitting. This is evidenced by the vast amount of blogs being written by individuals learning these crafts or the popularity of television programs such as the Great British Sewing Bee or Project Runway.
The project I intend to undertake is to resurrect historic, less familiar crafts to connect with a new generation. I will use historic handicrafts and their techniques to interpret them into modern pieces which will be produced in kit form for sale.
These kits will range in difficulty levels from beginner projects for those just starting with an interest in crafts through to more expert pieces designed to challenge. As a predominantly self taught craftswoman with no formal training I want to pass on both the link with the past historic skills bring alongside the pleasure that comes from crafting something with your own hands.
The kits will come in boxes which in themselves will be a striking visual piece using folded construction and era inspired typography. Where possible these will be utilising recycled materials. The kits themselves will contain all tools and materials required to create the piece.
Pieces attached as examples of work are as evidence of learnt skills and constructions methods. The design credits and copyright remain with each designer. Kits made for this project would be completly orginal and designed by myself.
