Scotland's Crafts Summary


This book explores the rich diversity of crafts which have a continuing tradition and style distinctive to Scotland. Set against a historical context, the book represents the work of contemporary makers: textiles from Shetland, such as spinning and Fair Isle knitting, tartan weaving and the making of Highland dress; shepherds crooks and sticks; Orkney straw backed chairs; traditional coastal and island boats; baskets and bagpipes; Harris Tweed and the use of natural dyes. Whilst some craft forms have enjoyed continuing interest and are still widely practised, others are localised and now in the hands of just a few individuals. The stunning photographs throughout this book emphasise the physical aspect of these crafts -- the tools, skills, raw materials and the landscape from which they originate. This book is almost tactile in its presentation and seeks to excite the reader to learn more about Scotland's own craft heritage.
