Collaboration as a way of conducting a creative practice is not a new phenomenon; however, it has become a prominent approach within the last two decades among artists, craftspeople and designers. This progression within contemporary craft is due in part to the growth of theory and practice generally; and movements within specific genres over the years. The ongoing development of post-disciplinary teaching and methods, the acknowledgement of underrepresented voices within craft discourses, and emergent technologies have had an effect on contemporary craft practice and thinking.
