Linney, Emma (2017) Maintaining the Aesthetic: exploring the process from Surface Design concept to manufactured product. Masters thesis, University of Huddersfield.

This research will explore the relationship of craft and manufacture, investigating whether these two areas can be connected and whether digital processes of making can be considered a craft or not. This will be conducted by analysing the researchers relationship with manufacturing techniques and assessing the characteristics of a ‘Craft Person’. In addition to this, manufacturing techniques will be tested and compared to discover the most appropriate methods for creating tactile surface designs, looking not only at aesthetic results but exploring the process of preparing a design for manufacturability.
