This Issue of Studies in Design Education and Craft is focused on creativity in the school and college. It draws from two main sources, both closely related. One is the recent Spear and Jackson School Project Award organised by the tool company to provide an incentive for new developments in design education and craft. The thirty-five entries covered a remarkably broad spectrum of workshop and studio activity and were judgp.d by a panel comprising of Mr. D.I.R. Porter, recently retired Staff H.M.!., Mr. Geoffrey Wilson, Chief Advisor for Kirklees, the editors of Craft Teacher News and of Studies in Design Education and Craft and the Education Officer of Spear and Jackson. The other source is the recent publication by Edward Arnold of the work of the Schools Council Development Project in Design and Craft Education which for five years was based at Keele University.
