traditional crafts skills research

I don't think I have posted anything on the blog yet about my wife Nicola's research. here is a video overview.

So whilst many of our friends know Nicola as a spooncarver by daytime she is Dr Nicola Wood of Sheffield Hallam University and conducts research into how craft skills and tacit knowledge are handed on. She is particularly interested in finding ways to preserve and share craft knowledge using multimedia, the web, video etc. Her most recent project has involved working with some of the last traditional folding knife makers in Sheffield.
