INTRODUCTION

Arts and crafts take many forms but are generally accepted to include such items as paintings, drawings, cartoons, prints, photographs, digital works of art, art installations, sculpture, ceramics, pottery, jewellery, woven or printed textile art, carvings, furniture, glass, metal and leather craft. While many of these items can be mass produced, for the purpose of this publication the focus is on one-off or limited series visual arts and crafts produced in either traditional or contemporary styles.
