Blurring The Edges Of Craft Through Collaboration
Collaboration has been an essential part of Michael Cullen’s lifelong relationship with craft. His main interest in giving this talk is to encourage people to step away or out of their world to experience how others work and create. Michael likes to say that the materials may differ but the language of creating is a common thread. During his talk he’ll discuss how working collaboratively has affected his work as an artist, woodworker and writer, a choice that has led him around the world. He’ll share stories and images about the joys and realities from early days at Emma Lake International, to working in France, Nepal and most recently, Cambodia.
