TED – TEXTILE ENVIRONMENT DESIGN: The value of craft and the Slow movement

The value of craft and the Slow movement

TED Research Assistant Clara Vuletich has been asked to contribute to an ongoing blog discussion about the value of craft and the Slow movement called Making a Slow Revolution, organised by Craftspace.

Originally focused around the issues of food and food production, the Slow movement has gradually come to represent a whole way of living which is a reaction to the fast-paced, disconnected world we live in. It’s core values are a respect for tradition and an understanding of the value of where and how an object is made.
