WFD-3010 Thinking and Achieving Through Craft

3 credits
This interdisciplinary course delves into craft – today, traditionally, and across cultures – from technique to meaning, comparing it with art, design, and other endeavors. Through reading, writing, discussion, and critical analysis, we will examine theory, tenets, and craft work itself, as well as how craft is represented in various media. With a focus on contemporary woodworking and furniture making, but looking into and being receptive to what can be learned from other craft disciplines, the course aims to discover how the fundamentals of craftsmanship might be more generally understood and applied.  We will consider all kinds of craft publications – books, articles, documentaries, how-to DVDs.  All participants are expected to contribute by bringing in ideas, writings, and visual materials (including our own handmade objects) for discussion and portfolio development.
