Craftways 2021: Tending to Craft
July 22-24, 2021
Research takes care. It requires work, and builds connections best when shared. The Center for Craft and Warren Wilson College’s MA in Critical Craft Studies invite you to join us for a research experiment around a key question: What work can we do together that we could not do alone? Over three days of listening, making, and discussing through virtual sessions, we will share research tools, works-in-progress, and think critically with one another. How can we learn from — and with — each other? If you are ready for an open-ended and collective consideration of what it means to tend to craft research, join us for Crafts Ways 2021: Tending to Craft.
Craft Ways 2021 is co-presented by the Center for Craft and the MA in Critical Craft Studies program at Warren Wilson College. As program partners, this gathering exemplifies the type of generative collaboration that builds intergenerational networks to recognize and support future craft practice, research, and scholarship.
