Text and Tactility: Perspectives on writing about craft
Writing about craft means writing about our world through the objects we create. Writing about craft and making is an invitation to write about the complex issues we face in everyday life: the environment, migration, labour, social relations, beauty, etc. In this talk we’ll explore how we use language to communicate our experiences with craft, and how, in talking about craft and making, we’re really talking about our place in the world.
