Public Lecture given at RAW Gallery on May 10, 2012

This lecture will contrast historical craft pioneers with contemporary crafters to argue that in order to understand future craft economies as they are connected to the power of do-it-yourself crafting, it is essential to examine past craft economies.  What ideologies keep repeating, and what are the elements that keep DIY alive and financially vital across generations?
