Abstract

To date, the majority of studies on pathways to sustainability have neglected or under-explored the possibilities that the crafts and craftsmanship represent for sustainability. Yet both craft and sustainable development are intricately connected with the way human beings create and interpret life; with culture and social relations; with use of and relationship with natural materials; and with livelihood and broader economic opportunities. In this paper, based upon data from Scotland, we study the theoretical and practical intersections between craft and sustainable development and analyse some of these mutual contributions in the area of building resilient of community; alternative concepts and models of the economy, and education for sustainable development.
