Untold stories: The new issue of Crafts magazine is out now

In our November/December issue we meet makers and artists using the narrative power of craft to potent effect.

Belfast-based glass artist Alison Lowry depicts stories of abuse with extraordinary delicacy and dignity, a group of Palestinian designers use deep-rooted local craft practices to rewrite the global story about their home, and hidden hands at the Royal Opera House bring a winter production to life.

Elsewhere, art fair founder Abby and gallerist Matt Bangser break down disciplinary barriers at their modernist home in New Canaan, and we shine a spotlight on the architects, technologists and craftspeople work together to bring ceramics back to the public realm. Our reviews section takes you from Glasgow, where artist Nick Cave’s shimmering constellations of textiles, beads and found materials showcase craftsmanship and politics, to Canada, where the new Netflix series Blown Away makes glassblowing a competitive sport.

Also in this issue is our ultimate guide to Christmas shopping – indispensable tips from makers, top fairs, the best books of the year and craft experiences for every personality on your gift list.
