A lot of crafthaus members have experience with cooperative projects, having worked with others within their field and also outside of their field. Please add "your story" and let us know how it went and what it was like.
- How did you project come about? Whose idea was it?
- What was the cooperative process like? Did you have a plan and stuck to it or not?
- What was the end result? Did you finish a piece or not?
- What happened with the work? Was it shown, where is it now?
Feel free to add lots of photos or videos.
Please add your projects as a NEW DISCUSSION individually in the discussion forum below.
