As I am off for summer I am spending my spare time reading books and researching for my dissertation. I finally got the chance to read 'Encore! The New Artisans' by Olivier Dupon and I feel really inspired by all of the wonderful creatives I came across. A mixture of weavers, printers, ceramics, 3D sculptures, embroiderers to name a few... but all amazing in their own right, and from different parts of the world which I also found inspiring (after the recent goings on in the UK).
I would recommend reading this book to open your eyes at various processes and if you are a bit nosey and like looking at behind the scenes in studios, it has a lot of pictures like that!
