Reclassifying crafts as non-creative… REALLY?!

The crafty blogosphere has been alight this month with the Government’s move to reclassify crafts as not creative.

As the CHA-UK  say, “The craft industry and those who work in it, over 88,000 people making over £3bn annual contribution to the UK economy, are inherently and by their very nature creative. We want the UK Government to stop ignoring The Crafts Council and the thousands of mostly sole trading craftsmen and women who consider themselves to be and indeed are creatives.” More from CHA-UK here; http://cha-uk.co.uk/news/petition-to-stop-the-government-reclassifying-crafts/#.UYzEZBcOzNQ.twitter
