Sir Christopher Frayling | Crafts Book Club

Listen again to Crafts magazine’s Book Club 

The Crafts magazine Book Club celebrates the relationship between writing and making. This time we welcomed historian, writer and award-winning broadcaster Sir Christopher Frayling to talk about his book On Craftsmanship (published by Oberon books) with Crafts editor, Grant Gibson.

In a series of linked essays, On Craftsmanship explores the role of craft in education, history and literature, as well as examining its place in the contemporary arts landscape and takes a rigorous, hard-headed look at craftsmanship today. 

Sir Christopher Frayling is former Rector at the Royal College of Art and Chairman of Arts Council England and of the Design Council. He has published 21 books on the arts, design and film, and contributed to Crafts on a number of occasions.

We were delighted to host this edition at the Clerkenwell showroom of Carl Hansen & Søn; a leading company of the Danish modern movement, known for its dedication to craftsmanship.
