My 7 Days at Arrowmont - Taking a Workshop

Crafthaus member Heba Barazi takes us on a trip to Arrowmont where she will attend a workshop with crafthaus member Ana Lopez:

"A one week summer trip that includes making art is a vacation many people dream of. Arrowmont with its picturesque site and historical buildings, attracting teachers who are masters in their field, is MY dream vacation."

Join her group, ask questions, be inspired:

Humor and Melancholy - Danielle James

One of crafthaus’ foci is advocacy. Advocacy for craft as an art form and advocacy for all practitioners from the ambitious hobbyist level on up.

We believe that an art and craft education benefits absolutely everyone, especially those who don't do well in standardized learning environments. As a field we need to spread the story of craft as a positive, healing influence just as much as we need to spread our story about skill and practice. 

This is Danielle James' story told in segments over the course of the next weeks:

- (1) Personal Background

- (2) Undergrad & Mustaches

- (3) Grad School and NEON Lights

Join this group, follow along, ask questions.

Marilyn Druin - extraordinary color, composition, and design

“Some artists are social commentators.

They interpret and comment upon life....

I try to take some of earth's essential elements and create my own world with order and harmony where my mind can be at peace."
