Some thoughts post Nordic 1 visit

Just back from annual leave where I had time to digest thoughts from our trip to Denmark, Sweden and Finland, and to catch up on some reading. It strikes me that craft has never seemed quite so zeitgeisty. You can't pick up a newspaper or magazine without finding another article on knitting etc and the numbers of young (and not so young) artists adopting the vocabulary and materials of craft are growing all the time (I've never seen so much crochet in fine art). And yet, I came back from the three Nordic countries feeling that the category of craft appears to be imploding.
