Craft / Crafts

Ålgården - Artists' Workshop and Gallery, Borås
|Translated by Google translation|

Corona - in March, Hdk, the University of Art and Design, closed its workshops at short notice and all teaching was diverted to distance education according to the authorities' recommendations. Of course, it was revolutionary for many of us. Arts and crafts as a subject are material-based and largely dependent on workshop equipment. Still - crafts are a force, a constant going on in most people's everyday lives. Most of what we deal with in daily life has traces of arts and crafts: the things, the materials, the tactile, the fixed points in life that are anything but stable. Crafts can serve as a fix point to rely on. Crafts are a force, it is a solution-oriented practice that absorbs, reflects, processes and visualizes human experiences. Arts and crafts as a subject are close to life. Anna T Wolgers /Professor of Textile Art Hdk /Valand

Six students from the last year of the master's programshows the works produced in the shadow of the corona epidemic.

Anja Fredell - Jie Zhou - Stina Edin - Statira Jazayeri - Ben-Hui Grace Wu - Subani Melin
