Throw away the tea cozies, banish any thoughts of gingham: craft just got all grown up

Tired of the clichés often trotted out about craft, Perri Lewis makes it her task to bring the world of making into the 21st century. Here she enlists the help of luminaries from the worlds of art, craft, design, and fashion to share their knowledge and advice, including fabric designer Amy Butler; Rob Ryan, artist and author of This Is for You; pottery designer Emma Bridgewater; ceramicist Grayson Perry; milliner Philip Treacy; the jewelers behind Tatty Devine; Topshop; and artist Tracey Emin. Instead of just providing individual projects, the book teaches the techniques for crafts such as paper-cutting, dress-making, printing, encrusting, leather work, and tailoring. However, for readers who prefer more guidance, there are 15 projects to make, including découpage shoes, a patchwork Louis chair, and a printed scarf. With the compiled words of wisdom of these experts, and Perri's own timeless advice, crafters will be up and running with scissors in no time.

Synopsis:

PERRI LEWIS writes about craft for the Guardian, the Daily Mail and Mollie Makes and is the features editor of Psychologies. She has her own blog, a go-to site for crafters: makeanddowithperri.wordpress.com
