Citizens of Craft

The Podcast

This series, hosted by Canadian Crafts Federation Director, Maegen Black, brings together the voices of craft artists, curators, educators and collectors who speak off the cuff about craft practice and its role in their lives.

These guest speakers are, truly, the “Citizens of Craft”. They are masters in their own right, chasing techniques that have been in use for thousands of years, or exploring new technologies that have just begun to push the boundaries of art. They appreciate and create objects with meaning, history, and purpose - rejecting the mass manufactured lifestyle of our time to capture something more authentic."

Each episode addresses one of the ten manifesto statements from the Citizens of Craft movement. Join us as we animate the story of craft through the values we hold dear. This project is made possible through extensive partnership with voicEd Radio, and the generous support of the Canada Council for the Arts.
