Maker Exchange Residencies

Saturday 5th February, 2022 - Bruce Sterling

Maker Exchange Residencies are a central part of the newly funded EU Craft Hub project which will showcase the wealth of European Craft practice and address sector challenges through artist residencies, training workshops, exhibitions, conferences, and a European Festival of Craft.
Between March – July 2022 Craft Hub will run a series of 5 day Maker Exchange Residencies hosted by the project partners:

Carlow County Council – Ireland
UWTSD – Wales
Design School Kolding – Denmark
Universidade Nova de Lisboa – Portugal
Glasmalerei Peters – Germany
Materahub – Italy. (((Way to go, Matera.)))

Each residency will have a different theme that has been inspired by the local cultural context, craft practices, expertise and techniques and how such practices might be applied across Europe.
These residencies are a capacity building opportunity for existing and future craft practitioners to support new professional opportunities, stimulate the creation of new works, increase and interconnect knowledge on craft making skills.

They will push the boundaries of Craft making processes through new experimental ways of making.
