Celebrate Craft

Brief: Explore and celebrate craft and all that it entails. Choose a specific craft and research to discover as much about it as possible. Understand it and devise a proposition and communicate it in an appropriate and inventive way. 

Creative Idea:  I initially chose the craft of woodcut, because I appreciated the level of intricacy and detail that could be achieved. I wanted my project to focus on the beauty of the craft itself. Whilst researching the craft, I identified key moments throughout the history of the craft that helped to shape it. I used these as content to build a series of typographic illustrations, that were then engraved onto wood, displaying the craft its all it's glory. To accompany this I created a printable book that gives users further information about the craft, as well as allowing users to interact with the craft and create beautiful woodcut prints for themselves.
