Craft’s Making It symposium launches on Sunday 21 February and offers ticket holders the opportunity to watch any of the sessions at any time and in any order for three days!
Making It represents the diversity of professional craft practice today and includes inspiring keynote speakers, conversations with an impressive line-up of guests and wonderful videos on craft makers and their practices. Keynote speakers include Leah Heiss, award-winning designer and craft practitioner working across human-centred interdisciplinary projects; Yu Fang Chi, artist and curator working across textile, silversmithing, sculpture and spatial installation; Bruce Rowe, artist, designer and architect working across disciplines to create sculpture, painting, imaginative objects and design products and Damien Wright, an award-winning Australian craftsman working in wood. Hear designer, illustrator and maker Beci Orpin chat about art, craft and commerce, and fashion design team VERMIN discuss their experiences of working with First Nations communities and sustainability.
The stories and insights of the presenters will be of interest to craft practitioners at all career stages, reflecting on issues facing the creative sector today and what it means to be a part of our craft and design community.
This not-to-be-missed event will be presented online and available to ticket holders for 72 hours
