Academic research in crafts, conducted by craftspersons from an inside perspective and through practice-led approaches is still young, as the practice fields only quite recently are accepted in academia. This paper presents methodological perspectives on the study of craft processes with a focus on experiential and embodied processes. The two doctoral thesis that are discussed here both deal with making in material by hands. Both researchers use a theoretical frame that allows for knowledge to emerge through the body in action and interaction with the material and environment. Both use video and practice-led research, where the video analysis plays a central role. Both researchers are reflecting on the double role of researcher-practitioner. The article discusses the methodological perspectives of these research projects, the differences and similarities and their relevance for craft research.
