Why Crafts Matter

I believe that learning how objects are crafted creates a greater connection with the material world that surrounds us. It changes our perspectives on what things are made of and how they are made, and in turn makes us better consumers and custodians for the world around us.

Objects that are made carry with them an embodied energy from the process of their production and the transport of goods. They also carry with them a human history. For both of these reasons it is important to appropriately look after what we have.

We are constantly trying to learn and discover more. Check our our articles, videos, and ongoing projects.

We partner with a number of established organisations to bring crafts, restoration, and furniture finishing courses to the public.

We do a lot of subcontracting work to restoration and conservation professionals in Sydney. We also take on the occasional independent project.
