Crafts

A few years ago I stumbled into the problem of the crafts. The modern world seemed to have all forgotten about the crafts, yet they are too important to be overlooked. With Ph D students I conducted an international survey of the crafts in a variety of countries.  We hit upon the notion of craft culture: some countries like Japan, Germany and Italy crafts have a strong craft culture as the crafts are cherished and nurtured. In several publications in Dutch and in English (under preparation) we are pleading for a restoration of the craft culture in other countries.
