MAKE magazine, a publication featured in Forbes Magazine’s August 2008 article ‘Inventing the Future Spread,’ is dedicated to putting the power of creation in the hands of the individual. Creators Dale Dougherty and Tim O’Reilly debuted MAKE in 2005, ‘part book, part magazine, evoking the techno-enthusiasm of the 1950s with a splash of new-age punk,’ wrote Forbes’ Elizabeth Corcoran. http://theshopsonelpaseo.com/?syzen=%D9%83%D9%8A%D9%81-%D8%A7%D8%B4%D8%AA%D8%B1%D9%8A-%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85-%D9%81%D9%8A-%D9%85%D8%B4%D8%A7%D8%B1%D9%8A%D8%B9-%D8%A8%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%83%D9%88%D9%8A%D8%AA&00d=94 كيف اشتري اسهم في مشاريع بالكويت CRAFT magazine, MAKE’s sister publication, explores that do-it-yourself mentality specifically in the world of arts and crafts. According to its website, craftzine.com, the magazine targets the movement of people ‘transforming how traditional arts and crafts with unconventional, unexpected and even renegade techniques, materials and tools.’ The magazine has a variety of projects and DIY recipes in each issue. source site ‘People are looking to save money and use what they have, which is why crafting, I think, is getting more popular these days,’ said Senior CRAFT Editor Natalie Zee Drieu. ‘I think people are tired of just consuming everything. There’s a connection we make with ourselves when we work with our hands, and with each other when we share what we make [whether as a gift, or teaching another person]. It’s significant now more than ever because of the economy.’ http://huntnewsnu.com/?santaklays=%D8%A7%D8%B3%D8%B9%D8%A7%D8%B1-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%A7%D8%B3%D9%87%D9%85-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%B3%D8%B9%D9%88%D8%AF%D9%8A-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%8A%D9%88%D9%85 Originally, the craft movement was for artists making handmade and, maybe most importantly, functional pieces. Today, the definition of ‘crafts’ has blurred so much with contemporary fine arts that, as George Summers, manager of the Boston Society for Arts and Crafts (SAC) gallery, said, modern day craft pieces don’t necessarily need a function.’ ‘The nice thing about our gallery is it crosses those boundaries,’ he said.
At SAC’s retail gallery on Newbury Street, wares range from functional pieces like pottery and jewelry to purely artistic pieces like sculpture.’
While the gallery acts as an exhibition space for craft makers and artists, Summers said gallery staff members ‘- many artists themselves ‘- serve another purpose:’ to help aspiring crafters find the means to discover their inner do-it-yourselfer. He suggests looking into evening and continuing education programs at local colleges, Brookline Art Center, Diablo Glass in Roxbury Crossing or Mudflat in Somerville. The Brockton Fuller Craft Museum, which mounts shows exploring the unlimitedness of craft materials and by challenging the definition of craft, also holds classes.
But while crafting and DIY-ing can be financially beneficial for the individual in the midst of the recession, seasoned craftmakers have been feeling some negative effects. After sales for her store plummeted last year, Groves was forced to find cheaper options for her more cost-conscious consumers. She started focusing on accessories like headbands; cheaper pieces that can change an entire outfit, and that also allow her to use up leftover pieces of material.’
‘I barely ever throw out any fabric, even scraps,’ she said.
Zee Drieu said she has also noticed the effects.
‘The economy is affecting everyone,’ she said. ‘I’m sure people aren’t buying much handmade goods from craft fairs. I’ve seen crafting places I love go out of business.”
Summers, however, maintained that while consumers seem to be purchasing less in quantity, they’re still paying special attention to quality.’
‘I think a lot of people seemed to be purchasing things that were handmade, that were well made and that would have some lasting value,’ he said. ‘Things that weren’t manufactured or mass produced.’
