Abstract

This qualitative study employs the informal interview technique as both the research and data collection method to delve into the personal meaning that craft making provides for its participants. Research questions addressed four women's backgrounds, experiences and current studio practice dealing with crafts. This study provides the four participants with an opportunity to voice their opinions, concerns and beliefs. The women interviewed speak positively about significant craft making experiences over spans of time. This report demonstrates that such experiences should be made available to a whole range of learners. Results from this study clearly reveal an intense sense of satisfaction and accomplishment derived from craft making. The data analysis and results not only informed the author, an art educator, but it also offers other art educators the opportunity to view craft making as an engaging, meaningful and valuable conduit to successful learning
