Time is running out to take the 2012 New Zealand Craft Survey - the first major craft research project to be undertaken nationally.
Share your views on what you like about craft in NZ, what needs celebrating, what needs improving, craft skills and education, and much more. Help Craft Aotearoa to develop a profile of who is engaged in craft activities. From there, we will develop an action plan outlining future craft sector projects - your input is essential.
Part 1 (six questions) is for anyone interested in buying and viewing craft. Part 2 is for those engaged in making craft.
More information about this research project is available at:

Thanks for your time and support.
PS. Here is what some people have already said they like about NZ craft...
"The amount of people involved in doing some type of craft (nearly everyone)!"
"The dedication of its serious practitioners. There are many who gi.ve their lives to it for little reward and become very accomplshed."
"Its strength is its New Zealandness. While aware of and following international trends, there is a distinctiveness about NZ craft that makes it special."
"I think its strengths are diversity and ingenuity, from the traditional to the innovative. I celebrate the sustainability of using recycled materials and homegrown skills."
"We are very contemporary in our high-end craft compared to much of what I have seen overseas."
"We have a free-thinking range of makers here who because of our geography are not bound to tradition. We have a unique cache of reference material that can be explored and used as content for wider, more universal, issues. We have a multi-cultural base of makers to call on, each bringing their own take on technique, tradition and aesthetic. "
