Revealing Craft is a photographic book revealing the hidden world of craft. Sheffield-based photographer India Hobson spent 16 months photographing a selection of 13 makers who sell their work on Folksy. This book is the story of their lives, through their homes, their processes and their materials. Designed by in collaboration with Folksy, it is a photographic project about the how slow stuff gets made: the things that take time, skill and effort. It is a largely invisible world of small home studios, spare rooms and kitchen tables and of expert techniques learnt over thousands of hours of practice often handed down from generations.

India Hobson is a UK based editorial, portrait and fashion photographer.

Folksy is a place to buy and sell hand crafted or designed work from UK designer-makers.
