Craft and Travel is a travel blog with a difference.
Officially launched in September 2016 but properly up and running since January 2017, its aim is to showcase traditional and contemporary crafts, art, design and fashion from around the world along with destination guides, exhibitions, instructions for how to make your own travel-inspired crafts projects, fashion and interiors trends, interviews with artisans, makers and designers and lots more!
We hope that over time it will become a place of inspiration and education with contributions from crafters, creatives, makers, designers and travellers from every corner of the earth.
Contributions are sought from anyone who shares a passion for either crafts, art, design, fashion or travel – whether you have taken photos of crafts on your holiday, are a maker/designer who would like to showcase your work, have come across a craft you think more people need to know about, or would like to write a travel feature with a ‘creative twist’, please get in touch with your craft and travel tales.
This is our chance to travel the world through creative design and craft, I hope you’ll join us on our adventures.
