In recent years, “making” has emerged as a tonic to the fast pace of modern life. Personally, I find there’s no better way to blow away the stresses and strains of a hectic day than to immerse myself in creating. So, this Spring issue is all about the role of arts and crafts in the community.


We have a myriad of inspirational


interviews with those creating positive change through arts and crafts in their own communities. Book reviews on the Social Meaning of Creativity and Craft Activism, business advice on bricks and mortar selling and engaging with your audience as well as makes, gardening and recipe ideas to help you make 2012 an enriching year.
