Event description

Description

This Waverley MAKERS Craft + Design TALK & DEMO is presented as part of Sydney Craft Week 2018

Contemporary craft exists in a plethora of forms and hybrid relationships. ‘Making dialogues’ entwine ceramics, digital technologies and other media. Rod Bamford explores how the new ecologies of craft practice are not solely concerned with making things, but also active, considered ways of engaging with personal, social and environmental concerns. Hear about digital crafting, preserving Norman Lindsay vases and sustainable production. See a demonstration of 3D clay printing.
Rod Bamford works at the intersections of art, craft and design. Rod has undertaken commercial design, is represented widely in major collections and has recently returned from Heading the Ceramics and Glass Department at the Royal college of Art in London.

The MAKERS Craft + Design Program is run by Waverley Council. The program builds creative capability and connection in the community through a broad range of mediums arising from a design approach including digital, traditional and contemporary crafts. Participants share skills, solve problems for good causes, for the love of innovating and to build well-being.
