What are contemporary arts and crafts?
The concept is broad, which makes the arts and crafts area so interesting and fun to work with. What above all unites all practitioners in the field is a large and solid knowledge of the material’s limitations and possibilities, regardless of whether you work with ceramics, glass, paper, metal, textiles or wood. How you choose to work is individual and can span everything from useful and ornamental objects, unique objects with an artistic intention, a decoration in a public environment or things and installations that communicate and raise questions about our time.
