Craftism: Saving the world knit by knit
Craft regains interest. Both as a leisurely activity (think about the surge of sewing clubs, crafts festivals and guerilla knitting groups) and as a field of research, handiwork techniques found a new en masse audience. As did craft’s social context. In her ‘Knitting for Good’, Betsy Greer exemplifies how knitting and creativity can improve one’s life, the life of anyone in one’s community and the world at large. Marina Toeters, who works as an intermediary for fashion and technical companies, looks at the broader context of crafts and specifically how crafts can be combined with high tech materials and tech­niques. Researcher Eunjeong Jeon investigates how woolen clothing used in interactive objects can prompt emotions. See full invitation here.
