In order to achieve this aim a repository of artisan knowledge called "CRAFTpedia" in which traditional technical and cultural knowledge about craft professions is collected and classified has been created.
Content and the way to present it seems interesting to me: endangered or invisibilised knowledge from all over the world is gathered and each seems to be researched with the same value.
Contribution to the "Who knows?" handbook
Different traditional and ancestral artisanal practices are organized according to materials (wood, glass etc.) and are presented with each one sheet – videos, images, details and a description allow the reader to gain a lot of information on each technique.

A search tool for finding practices according to specific interests.

Corbett’s craftivism is primarily a counterexample for us. The book describes “craftivism” as a rather professional, strategical and efficient way of doing activist campaigns, for people who are able to identify and collaborate with cultural institutions, enterprises, political representatives, etc. – or for people who want to engage as a hobby.
