Craft and Text Conference
A one day conference from the Crafts Study Centre and International Textile Research Centre.
The theme of the conference is the resonant relationship between craft and text. This may take literal as well as metaphorical forms: from critical analysis to ceremonial lettering and on to performance, where the craft object has inspired poetry. Craft Practitioners have also integrated text into their work in allusive ways, as well as for the purposes of social and political commentary; text has become a fundamental integrated aspect of the making process.
The Keynote speakers are the eminent academics and practitioners; Alice Kettle and Timothy Donaldson.
