Kinship + Craft is a new, independent online publication dedicated to celebrating personal and process-oriented stories of artists, designers, and other makers from around the world.

Rather than focusing on the polished end products, it provides intimate interviews and material spotlight features that focus on the inspirations, material explorations, and background stories of creatives working across a range of materials. Through content like this, we hope to deepen cross-cultural understanding, provide insight into what it’s like to work with various materials, and broaden the scope of representation on a single platform.

As an extension of this, Kinship + Craft collaborates with makers when it can to provide their interviews in their native or community languages. Although the primary language on the website and social media channels is in English, Kinship + Craft has offered translated versions of several of its interviews. Since its launch in May 2021, this has included Dutch, Traditional Chinese, German, and Spanish, but we are working to provide more languages with every possible opportunity.



At Kinship + Craft, we believe in a ‘party wave’ mentality that stems from the idea that inclusion brings joy and mutual benefit to everyone. Our goal is to tell stories that inspire your own creativity, encourage curiosity, and celebrate the diversity of people, cultures, and creative practices in the world.

Kinship + Craft advocates for sustainable solutions for the environment, makers’ well-being, and the well-being of their extended communities. We believe that understanding both contemporary and past approaches to design and craft can inspire us to live more conscientiously now and in the future.

Wherever and whenever we can collaborate locally and/or share information about other makers or content creators related to our content, we will seek to do so.

Meet Lindsay

Created by Lindsay Marsh, Kinship + Craft comes to the table of craft and creativity-focused publishing with first-hand knowledge and experience as an artist and designer herself.  Since earning her BFA in Interior Design at Parsons School of Design in New York City, and her Masters in Contemporary Design at Sotheby’s Institute of Art in London, Lindsay has explored multiple areas of the creative industry, traveling around the United States and the world in the meantime. 

For the past 8 years, Lindsay has resided in Germany, where she has worked as an English teacher for businesses and individuals specializing in Architecture and Design English while developing her own art practice. She currently lives in Stuttgart, Germany.

As an American emigrant, Lindsay especially looks forward to shining a light on the personal stories of makers who have immigrated to other countries for their work.

Due to the potential complications that having multiple languages on one website can cause, these translated interviews will be available in PDF form. They will be easily accessible from the English-version features on the platform.
