'Craft in Context’ Symposium during London Craft Week

4 May - Save the date!

Join Designer Courses founder Katherine Pogson for a one-day symposium “Craft in Context’ in Covent Garden during London Craft Week 2017.

Expect lively debate on the future of craft including luxury, sustainability, activism and more - for those at any stage of their career.

Since setting up her independent design studio in 2000 at Cockpit Arts, the craft-focused design incubator in Holborn, London, designer-maker and founder of Designer Courses, Katherine Pogson, has seen many cycles, trends and business models at work in the arena of contemporary craft.  

In 2015, Katherine began researching this interest as a PhD candidate based in the Centre for Sustainable Fashion at University of the Arts London with a particular focus on the potential on handmade objects to create dialogues about relating to the natural world. 

The role of craft - satisfaction in making, ethical attitudes to materials and exploration of the relationship between humans, technology and the environment, have become universal themes in the new Anthropocene era, and these themes among many more, will be the subject of lively discussion at this one-day Symposium to be held at The City Literary Institute in Covent Garden, during London Craft Week 2017.
