Shedding the Shackles: Women's Empowerment through Craft
Women’s craft has often been undervalued or ignored in the art world. It is considered ‘lesser’ than other art forms such as painting or sculpture. However, with the resurgence of ‘craftivism’ and with the internet providing a wider audience for craft enterprises, a book about women’s craft enterprises, their artisanal excellence and the positive impact their individual projects have on breaking the poverty cycle is long overdue. Featuring artisans and projects from across the globe, celebrating their vision and motivation the book will offer a fascinating glimpse into how these craft initiatives have created a sustainable lifestyle, and impacted upon their communities at a deeper level. Hardcover, 192 pages.
