About Danielle James - Humor and Melancholy

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's 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.

My mother and I during my graduate thesis exhibition Photo: Erin YoungeCRAFTHAUS: Where did you grow up? What’s your background?DANIELLE: I was born in Delaware and grew up in a little town right in the middle of the state. Baltimore is really close, DC and New York are close. My dad worked a blue collar factory job at a Delaware Chemical Plant. They make bleach for Clorox. He knows a lot about bleach [laughing]. My mother worked at a newspaper called the News Journal. I remember going into the back room where the newspapers were printed and watching them slide down all the way to the floor. Like in the game “Shoots and Ladders.” Then workers came…Continue
