Crafts issue 294: May/June 2022 – Back to the future

The May/June 2022 issue of Crafts spotlights makers for whom craft is a living link between past, present and future.

Our cover star Cannupa Hanska Luger looks to his Native American ancestors for inspiration, drawing from historical approaches to materials and making to create work that is deeply embedded in contemporary politics, while in London the founders of Studio Furthermore draw on scientific techniques refined over decades to make ceramics destined for outer space.

We meet craftspeople applying timeless hand-skills to working with plastic waste and explore traditional techniques from around the world that could help in our fight to save the planet.

Elsewhere, we look at Esnu Su’s woven response to the Syrian refugee crisis and delve into the work of two twentieth-century titans of textiles, Sheila Hicks and Magdalena Abakanowicz, as their work goes on display at major institutions.
