CRFT3100 - New Craft Paradigms
This studio course will examine the new craft paradigm in the 21st century through projects and research. At a time in which the dichotomies in art and craft theory are no longer viable, this course will cover the contradictions and distinctions between material conditions of practice, and the rhetoric that accompanies them. Through research, studio practice, discourse and lectures, students will be able to visually and verbally communicate concepts of contemporary craft theory, as they analyze the relationship of the hand and the handmade, craft practices, materials and histories.
