Connecting the threads

The mission of the Craft Atlas is to connect resources, knowledge and people in regard to craft practise & heritage.
We do this by means of combining own research with connecting, curating and bringing together existing resources, databases and networks.

Do you have materials you would like to share with us for publication?
Do you have a craft story you would like to tell to a wider audience?
Would you like to widen or dispute facts written about a craft?
Do you know of, or do you represent, another great, open resource that we could include in the collection?


Then, please connect with us!
