Why is art and craft important in today's world? Pre-Covid, I visited the Royal Melbourne Show at the Melbourne Show Grounds. I was hoping to do the rides, get acquainted with farm animals and come away with a couple of show bags. Little did I know, I would stumble upon some amazing works of art and craft at the Spotlight Makers' Pavilion. Crochet flowers, hats, embroidery and quilts had me transfixed. And here I was, thinking, art and craft were losing ground to mechanization in today's world. That's when it struck me, art and craft is more relevant today than ever before!
