My first piece for the new art blogazine Hyperallergic posted last night!

The teaser: In an age of DIY transformations, Etsy domination and artisanal homemade chocolates sold at hip flea markets, is CRAFT still a dirty word? Brooklynite Amy Shaw reflects on her years of experience in the field and thinks about the world of craft in general.

It’s great timing, what with the American Craft Council conference happening right now and all. (More on that later… I’m sooo tired tonight and might not post ’til tomorrow.)

Read the whole article right here….

Congrats on the launch, Hrag!
