On November 17th, we took a day trip to Vancouver B.C. to attend the New Craft Symposium, organized by the Material Matters Lab at Emily Carr University of Art and Design.
It was inspiring to see various projects, which expand the notion of craft into areas of design, art, fashion, technology, architecture, and social practice. The conversation about the role of makers and experimental practices of making that are in core collaborative and community oriented was equally fascinating. We came away with lots of new ideas.
