Description

All Makers Now? was a two-day conference exploring craft values in 21st century production at Falmouth University’s Penryn Campus in Cornwall on 10-11th July 2014.
In this brave new world of Makerspaces and Fablabs anyone can be a digital craftpreneur, harnessing the power of digital technologies to create, co-create, collaborate, make and sell.
Aimed at makers and researchers of all shapes and codes including hackers, crafters, inventors, designers, economists, curators and critical theorists, this two day conference will explore craft values, traditional making processes and novel forms of engagement, participation and interaction in digital and material cultures.
We welcome contributions from both within and beyond the field of craft.
Gray delivered 2 papers: ‘Beneath the Surface / eca: Digital-craft borderlands in education’ in collaboration with professor Stephen Bottomley and Geoffrey Mann and ‘Design-Archaeology: Bringing a Pictish inspired drinking horn fitting to life’ in collaboration with Dr Mhairi Maxwell.
