Crossed stitch Tightening the thread between contemporary art and craft

Contempo brings together four artists who are proving that craft is not a dirty word.

From a cross-stitcher to a ceramicist, a textile artist to a glass blower, we hear from practitioners who are introducing audiences to traditional craft techniques while showing us that we shouldn’t be poo-poohing the word craft.
