How could I forget?

In my last post, I completely forgot to note that I'd also taken a trip to the New Ashgate Gallery in Farnham for the opening of the ACJ "Choice!" show there on the Friday night. This is the 2016 edition of the annual show of work by members and we were…

Being in the world

I’ve found a couple of things:

1/ Auction for Aid – raising funds for the Refugee/Migrant Crisis

Like their About page on Facebook says, they are an “Auction For Aid – Contemporary Jewellery Auction to benefit the refugee crisis.” A bunch of UK based jewellers, (amounts are in GBP) are auctioning off some pretty great looking work on Facebook (yes, you do seem to need an account to bid) that will post/ship internationally.

Welcome to the 2016 Auction For Aid.…

What a week!



Quite apart from the preparations for the new students starting next week (and the previous ones returning, of course), I've spent a lot of time in the workshops - on Tuesday evening as much to avoid violent thunderstorms as anything else - making up work for the Made In The Middle show, work which shows a completely new way of working for me, eschewing applied - illustrative - narrative for a more 'improvised' narrative of material, being braver about allowing the…

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.
