Around the Table: Furniture Design Meets Social Practice
The collaborations Locke facilitates engage would-be consumers in the process of making. In multiple incarnations of the Around the Table project, she has solicited collaborations from total strangers to design and build their own dining room tables. New economies are established and meaningful relationships are forged through the exchange of skill. Around the tables that we build, new communities of aware, empowered and self-reliant craftspeople are formed.
