Craft Cartel is a Melbourne-based craft collective for “crafty types who don’t dig rose scented doilies”.  Celebrating all that is irreverent, ironic, kitschy, delightfully offensive and made lovingly by hand, Craft Cartel supports craft creatives who would normally sit outside the retail space by using avant-garde techniques and recycled materials, whilst dealing with subject matter that doesn’t quite fit the ‘craft’ mold. Craft Cartel is constantly working to promote a new image of ‘craft’ – interesting hand made objects rather than “mass produced plastic crap.” They proclaim: “We do not subscribe to art wank and we are prone to ridiculing the pretentious.”
