Would William Morris Use An iPad?

In the wake of recession, the rise of digital technology and 24/7 marketing, modern communities are reacting by forming farmer's market and hosting kitting bees, while 'slow' lifestyle books are flying off the shelves. Are we seeing the beginnings of a new arts and crafts movement, and if so what does that look like in the age of the iPad?


Would William Morris use an iPad?

The Arts and Crafts movement was a response from William Morris and others on the edge of the Pre-Raphaelite movement against the rise of manufacturing, which they felt was soulless, lacked aesthetic and trapped people in poverty. They venerated artisan and traditional techniques, a simpler rural life and were social revolutionaries.
