The ways how craft culture is represented in the flows of social media and in popular craft books often does not reach the deeper levels. Research on craft culture helps to understand that crafts and craft skills are an essential part of society and elemental in the life cycle of civilisations. Also, craft skills and research skills are akin. In both processes, in the making of a crafted object and in the making of research, one searches, tests, plans, tries and unmakes, re-plans and concentrates and sometimes achieves the state of flow. It is this dialogue between skills that I wish to indulge myself in.
