Abstract

A commendable feature of craft students' projects at B.Ed. degree level is the opportunity made available to tackle needy problems too often neglected by the professional designer and manufacturer - a neglect not necessarily caused by a lack of sympathy but rather by the harsh realities of the business world where, in the final analysis, any venture must be financially viable. This often prec!udes the manufacturer of small numbers of specialist goods for isolated groups of individuals which would not provide the cost effectiveness of mass production or, indeed, where insufficient finance is available for purchase.
