Crafts magazine Issue No. 261

Our Summer Issue is here, and it’s our first-ever edition with souvenir, split-run covers.

In true summer holiday spirit, we travel from the Netherlands to Berlin by way of Milan this issue. Our cover stars, the Dutch design duo Studio Job, welcome us into the mad house to show us how they’ve reinvented the decorative arts for contemporary collectors. We visit the Berlin workshop of furniture project Cucula to learn about how it's helping refugees to forge a future in the city, while ceramist Chris Keenan tells us how his career in clay all started with a Ronseal ad and bespoke shoemakers Carréducker introduce us to their fresh take on a classic British boot…

Plus, architect and critic Sam Jacob reflects on the craft of copying, our editor Grant Gibson rounds up Milan design week, textile artist Rita Parniczky tells Katie Treggiden about the inspiration behind her semi-translucent tapestries and our Shops & Galleries Guide 2016.
