As part of a week of events called Craft Cultures exploring the contemporary significance of craft at the University of Leicester, I’ll be giving a talk about the Craft of Use alongside Professor Susan Luckman from the University of South Australia and author of Craft and the Creative Economy.

The significance of craft is bound up in ideas and ideals of craft as skillfulness and the power of ingenuity, the transformative potential of pleasure in making and using things, and the desire and satisfaction associated with doing things well. Please join us and take part in the discussion. Details on the event can be found here.
