Craft + Design

Discover what it means to be a craft artist and entrepreneur in the contemporary craft world.

Session 2: July 10–22, 2022

It’s an exciting time to explore contemporary craft, as artists and designers cross disciplines to meld traditional and new technologies to develop hybrid approaches to making. In this course, you'll learn introductory techniques and leading-edge technologies in Ceramics, Glass, and Jewelry + Metals. 

We’ll examine the potential for two-dimensional image, three-dimensional form, and the cultural importance of craft, while gaining valuable hands-on skills in diverse materials and design approaches. Learning experiences will emphasize cross-disciplinary innovation, creative experimentation, and knowledge sharing with an emphasis on art, design, technology and entrepreneurship.

No previous experience in these processes is required. Faculty and staff will guide students through demonstrations, presentations, and group discussions.

Students will gain exposure to the facilities, studio environment, and career possibilities in contemporary craft.
