Material: Making and the Art of Transformation – Nick Kary
In the age of computer-assisted design, mass production and digital living the traditional skills of the craftsperson are maybe somewhat hard to find. Yet the desire for well made and beautiful objects from the hands – and minds – of skilled artisans is just as present today as it has ever been.
Nick Kary explores what it is to be a maker. He tells the stories of craftspeople, asking them why they make and te challenge of forging a living out of a practice that was once a necessity and is now something of a luxury.
