A new journal entitled Craft Research is released this month with an aim to promote the emerging area of craft research within the disciplines of applied arts, crafts and craft education. The journal is dedicated to presenting and reporting on research, in the widest sense, in order to advance the knowledge in the field. It will contain a number of peer-reviewed articles that encompass research developments into materials, processes, methods, concepts, aesthetic and style. The Craft Research journal intends to portray and build the crafts as a vital and viable modern discipline that has a vision for the future.
