Founded in 2010, Flamingo is a London-based culture and illustration magazine that celebrates doing-it-yourself. Investigating alternative lifestyles, we believe that creativity, community and grassroots culture are the most fascinating things in life.
The Future Craft Issue pays homage to the potential and pleasure of making. Investigating the craftsmanship of the future, it celebrates both the old with the new and the skilled artisans that create this.
In this issue we meet those who are shaping the future of making. The value of the handmade over the machine made has never been more pronounced, as people become increasingly interested in process as well as product.
We discover how the artisan’s workshop can combine with industrial technology; we visit The Thread Wrapping Machine which sees the invention of an entirely new craft, created with its own rules and boundaries. Proving that craft remains as relevant as ever, we visit the London Centre for Book Arts as it harnesses the educational power of craft while, as the traditional microbrewing scene gains momentum in the UK, we meet with the East London Brewing Company.
