An investigation into the value that digital techniques offer crafts and vice versa; exploring artistic, technical, and social values by crossing borders.

What does digital integration mean for professional craft practice? Mastering software takes time, just like mastering a traditional craft does. Should we update the concept of craft and the craftsman, or should we see craftsmanship as something that is always evolving and, with the help of high-tech tools, central to society?

Crafting Europe

Through research and the work of makers, we try to find answers and inspiration. The works presented have been created by participants from eight countries in the four-year cooperation programme Crafting Europe: Ireland, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Georgia, United Kingdom, Ukraine, and the Netherlands.
