Craft and Essential Luxury ?
This was the title of the debate of 25th Sept 09. Run by Arts & Business , Walpole and sponsored by American Express it was at the Sackler Centre at the V&A.
A good panel. I left the room having not said enough, but probably too much as is my way. I look forward to the next developments and the Crafted initiative being run by Arts & Business. Follow the links in green if you are curious.
The language ‘Crafts’ have used to describe itself and practice for such a long time is now suddenly of relevance ( slow, provenance, rarity, connoisseurship ) . It will be interesting to see if Arts & Business does manage to link these ideas with the essence of contemporary Craft and introduce what we all do to a much larger and curious audience.
