Craft Conversations at the Center for Craft in Asheville


From the Center for Craft website:

Join us for public conversations about research and projects connected to craft studies!

Craft Conversations is a five-part series organized by the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies and hosted at the Center for Craft, Program Founding Partner, in downtown Asheville.

These are not formal lectures. Instead, we invite you into the evening classroom of the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies, Warren Wilson College, where you can hear how people conduct, analyze, share, and discuss their work on craft history and theory.

Programs begin promptly at 6:30 PM and end at 8:30 PM. Programs are free and open to the public; Reservations requested (see link below); light refreshments will be available.

You will have the opportunity at this final conversation in the series to hear from Warren Wilson College President Lynn Morton, MA Program Director Namita Gupta Wiggers (USA), and Core Faculty Benjamin Lignel (FRANCE) and Linda Sandino (UK).

The evening ends with a rapid-fire Pecha Kucha-style presentation of research-in-progress by currently enrolled candidates in the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies Program:
