Craft Research is relatively new to all, with its first publication launched in 2010. It is edited by Kristina Niedderer, University of Wolverhampton and Katherine Townsend, Nottingham Trent University.
According to the Intellect Journal Catalogue:
“The aim of Craft Research is to advocate, promote and provide a recognized outlet for current and emerging craft research, including research into materials, processes,methods, concepts, aesthetics and style. Through exemplary scholarly research, this journal represents the crafts as a vital and viable discipline that explores technology, questions and develops cultural and social practices, and interrogates and affirms philosophical and human values.”
