Ramona Barry, Rebecca Jobson


Once the domain of the domestic, craft has now infiltrated every creative sphere – including food, fashion, fine art and architecture. If this craft renaissance is indicative of a new wave of keen creatives then The Craft Companion is the ultimate guide to navigating the new craft frontiers. From appliqué and baskets to weaving and zakka, The Craft Companion features over 30 new and old crafting techniques.

Each chapter looks at the evolution of a craft, inspiring artists working within the medium, as well as the various tools and techniques required to get you started – plus a project you can do at home. There are also 165 bonus project ideas to test your new-found skills.

With over 20 years in the craft and design industries, Ramona Barry and Rebecca Jobson are bonafide craft gurus. Readers will love Ramona and Rebecca’s witty voice and will be inspired to experiment and dip their toes into new crafts.
