There is a lovely website you might want to visit: Made Not Manufactured consists of a gallery of photographs of craftspeople and their work. The photographer is Steve Kenward and his project is ongoing. Scroll about three quarters of the way down for images of Journal colleague Isabella Whitworth in her dyeing studio!

    (In catch-up mode now; please excuse the very late comment). I’ve had lots of emails about this project – or possibly one with the same name – and I’m sorry to be a pedant, but I cannot get past the name itself.

    ‘Manufactured’ means made by hand. “manus” – hand; “facere” – to make or do.

    It’s just so damn irritating, and shows a general lack of … something on the part of the instigators. Erudition? Thought? Research?? I dunno, but it makes them sound stupid, and I throw up my hands every time. Thanks for the opportunity to rant about it, though; I’ve kept my trap shut thus far… 😉

    You’re welcome! Happy to provide a place for the letting off of steam… This particular project name has had no effect on my hackles whatever, but I know the feeling. I am still seething over a restaurant which serves syrup sponge but calls it sticky toffee pudding! Discovered this horror a couple of weeks ago and haven’t recovered yet. Both are nice puddings but they are DIFFERENT, and now a whole generation is being misled. I know, because I was eating with them and they were clueless *sigh*
