    Thank you so much for your reply jmpld40!

    Our definition of craft: Craft is commonly associated with a humanist approach to work that embraces human engagement in making. When work is approached as craft it involves reliance on distinctly human skills (entailing mastery, all-roundedness and embodied expertise) and attitudes (entailing dedication, communality and exploration) that distinguish it from mechanical work resulting from the prioritization of machine control.

    Does this term reflect what you do?
