Craft Industrialism, Leeds, 2015

Call for proposals from Leeds-based Jenny Lee, who has given a talk at a previous bioLeeds event.

Craft Industrialism seeks to set up a new initiative that bridges the gap between the maker and the public.

A carefully curated public space will be created to reveal the process of craftsmanship and showcase the maker’s creative process. Each selected maker’s work will be carefully presented in an informal setting to enable the narrative of the work to be revealed, and to demonstrate the complexity and consideration that goes into every craft product made – from the initial starting point, design development and to the final production method.

Low-tech, interactive ‘factories’ will be featured in the space, to enable public participation in the making process. Resulting in social engagement and knowledge transfer between the maker and the public. Through this project we hope to achieve wider understanding and appreciation of craftsmanship and to promote and support our local creative communities.
