The theme of Håndværk bookazine no. 6 is ‘resources’.
This issue of Håndværk highlights the connection between sustainable and durable practices, and a fundamental grasp of materials and artisanal techniques. It is talking about nature as a resource; the raw materials we find in nature as resources; and the energy we consume when we transform natural resources into materials – and, subsequently, into objects and products – as a resource. Education is also a resource, and so are experience and networks as well as personal background, drive and talent.
This issue introduces weaving and furniture upholstery, flour milling, bread baking, sheep farming, the production of wool yarn and many other textile fibres. It takes a look at the production of design objects in wood, ceramic, glass, sea grass and cardboard, among other materials, as well as the creation of aromatic scents.
The Håndværk bookazine is based in Denmark and is published by designer, photographer and writer Rigetta Klint. In the publication, Klint draws on her lengthy experience and career – initially as a practicing craftsperson and designer, and later as a writer and photographer. Her approach is driven by high standards and dedication.
With a clear and consistent emphasis on craftsmanship and materiality, the Håndværk bookazine portrays the living and changing practice of design and craft through in-depth interviews and portraits painted in both words and images. It focuses on craft in its own right and as a necessary basis for architecture, art, fashion, interior design, as well as for a good meal.
