This book showcases the new wave of cool craftingquirky, cutting-edge, craft-based artwork, often called Indie Craft or D.I.Y. craft. Using traditional methods such as embroidery, crochet, knitting, cross stitch, tapestry, needle felt, and plush toy making, the Indie Crafters create work that is contemporary, controversial, kitsch, ironic, humorous, and blurs the lines between art and craft.
Jo Waterhouse is a freelance writer interested in many areas of art, including lowbrow, street, skateboarding, and tattoo art. She is the author of Concrete to Canvas: Skateboarders' Art, Concrete 2 Canvas: More Skateboarders' Art, and Art by Tattooists: Beyond Flash.
