This book brings together cutting-edge research from leading international scholars which explores the geographies of making and craft, and the different understandings of ‘making’. It traces the geographies of making practices from the body, to the workshop and studio, to the wider socio-cultural, economic, institutional and historical contexts. The place of creative practices in ‘making’ geographies and worlds is considered, as well as the multiple lives of things in creatively re-working objects. Contributions examine how concerns around the body, matter and materiality have shaped the geographer’s in the practices of ‘making geographies’, whether this be the shaping of subjects, knowledge or the world.

This book offers a forum to consider the future directions of the field and calls to re-visit the politics of production. It will be of great interest to creative and cultural geographers, as well as those studying the arts, culture and sociology.
