Craftsmanship Alone is not enough - about the need for a dynamic curriculum in a craft based education.

Quinn, Anthony (2017) Craftsmanship Alone is not enough - about the need for a dynamic curriculum in a craft based education. In: Future Flux, 22nd-25th March 2017, Portland Oregon.

Type of Research: Conference, Symposium or Workshop Item
Creators: Quinn, Anthony
Description:

The presentation will describe the context of a diminishing craft education at high school level and its subsequent ramifications at BA & MA level. It will examine the unique approach to the problem developed at CSM, exposing an innovative pedagogic practice and a philosophical approach to the medium of ceramics. It will explore teaching strategies, opportunity creation and diversity of output across 4 frames of ceramic practice as defined in the curriculum;

-Meaningful engagement - public realm, participatory practice
-Embodied Practice – installation, sculptural, expressive, conceptual works
-Future Craft – research, materiality, new technology, internet of things
-Connoisseurship – exemplary craftsmanship and design.

The lecture Craftsmanship alone isn’t enough will provide a model of practice for educators and teachers in the U.S within their own transformative educational contexts from studio to University.
