    Craft is manifold, evidencing an essential human need to make. This last, exceptional year has shown this as never before. The COVID-19 pandemic and repeated lockdowns have encouraged people to turn to crafts of various kinds and for numerous reasons, but all appear to be linked to the satisfaction of creating something tangible and sometimes lasting. The pandemic has focused craft in three particular areas: health and wellbeing, whether as a concern for oneself or others, DIY, and online and digital making. These three strands are not exclusive to each other but often closely intertwined.
