With huge thanks to everyone who helped us on the journey to getting here, the Crafting Self Final Report is now  downloadable here. Hard copies are also available, please just contact us (

We hope we’ve done at least some justice to the people whose stories we heard, and hope that in some small way this research will help both the overall craft and designer-maker scene in Australia and individual makers as both seek to grow.

A more academic-type book will also be available early 2020 presenting detailed findings. We appreciate that not everyone has access to Uni libraries, and certainly don’t expect anyone but an institution can afford to pay the price for an academic book, so have arranged for this to be available electronically as Open Access. Stay tuned, and keep making!
