From the cover: “English crafts: an evocative term. This book presents a systematic search for the true state of craftwork in England today. The resurgent interest in all kinds of crafts has no parallel in our history, a paradoxical position in a press-button society. The whole craft scene is surveyed from the world-wide organisations to national councils, government sponsored services and regional associations, charities, courses, craft centres and communal workshops. The history of the guilds is traced together with their influences and constitutions.”
