Craft History: using the Crafts Study Centre's Archives

Craft history

Working class, middle class, upper class, evening class

A lecture and discussion by Dr Stephen Knott

Stephen Knott is the Crafts Study Centre's Founder Fellow in Modern Craft and his research project considers the importance of evening classes and forms of part-time and self-directed learning both in the individual biographies of many of the craftspeople represented within the Centre's archive as well as the forms of reciprocal learning and social interaction with practitioners of diverse skill levels that takes place within this educational milieu. Dr Knott will outline the direction of his research project and comment on the practice of prominent maker-educators such as Edward Johnston, Michael Cardew and Denise and Henry Wren of Oxshott Pottery
