Craft Journeys

About The Conversation Series

We had the great pleasure of presenting the 2021 virtual Conversation Series to our festival audience.

Through the Conversation Series we strive to foster public appreciation of outstanding craft-based work.  We are committed to featuring diverse craft-based artists and designers working in multiple disciplines across the craft continuum, from ancestral, tribal and traditional to leading-edge contemporary.

By providing a festival platform for established and emerging craft-based artists & designers and the gallerists, curators, collectors and other cultural partners who support and represent their work, the Conversation Series contributes important discourse on craft’s enduring role in our society.

Maximising the benefits of a virtual platform, the Conversation Series offer a variety of experiences. Whilst ostensibly a cooperation between Canadian and UK partners, the craft artists, gallerists, curator and  collectors contributing to the 2021 series are truly international, spanning a range of craft materials and specialisms with roots and references from across the globe.

About Craft Journeys

Craft Journeys is an evening event where three artists are each invited to share their unique career paths within the craft sector during an informal, interactive 90-minute talk. Tea and light refreshments served.
