Abstract | Abstract
Creativity has been given much attention by researchers in various areas, but recent studies lack particular discussions on craftsmen’s creativity. This article presents an analysis of craftsmen’s creativity as a complex phenomenon that indicates the need for a cross-disciplinary research to enable creativity research to reach its full potential in the future. We regard craftsmen’s creativity as a contextual-based activity, involving a range of socio-material aspects in practice.
This underpins the need for a holistic and cross-disciplinary view of craftsmen’s creativity that is built upon a hybrid of insights gained from diverse fields including psychology, cognition, arts, humanities, design, and learning, etc.
