Traditionally, craft and design have been viewed as two entities. Expanded Discrete States: Craft + Design melds the two genres together. Because in reality, one does not exist without the other.
Artisan celebrates the opening of our new home for craft and design by taking a closer look at the role design takes in the craft process. Six leading practitioners from the fields of architecture, jewellery, fashion, weaving, industrial design and public art will showcase their work together.
All six attract attention for their innovative approach - pushing the boundaries of what we expect from each medium. They have each forged successful careers by creating products for public use using their own unique blend of craft and design.
