Welcome to a series of lectures presented by CRAFT! Konstfack.

In this series of lectures, you will meet a variety of speakers from within the international field of craft. Both theoretical as well as makers point of view will be shared.

Hear a writer’s thoughts on how recent lockdowns has affected ways in working both on personal levels as well as for the whole community within the field of craft. Get a glimpse of an artist discovering an obsession, and how to develop a wide range of work within that fixation spanning through different materials and media. Alongside with the craft makers disclose connection with material and how to involve political and community orientation in an artistic practice. As if this wasn’t enough, we have also added a curator who will share experiences on exhibiting craft.

We happily welcome you to follow these lectures online via zoom.
