The Idea of Craft Asks the class to try to define the word “craft.” What items do the students associate with the word “craft”? Are these items cheap or expensive?

What is the difference between fine art, decorative arts, crafts, and design? During the Renaissance, craft objects were degraded as mere handiwork, not designed for serious contemplation or for aesthetic value. This distinction did not exist in other parts of the world, such as in Japan where a teacup could be considered a priceless work of art.
