Join Elizabeth Essner, curator of current Aldrich exhibition Handheld, and Ezra Shales, author of The Shape of Craft, for a compelling conversation about craft. Through the lens of Essner’s exquisite exhibition, the duo will explore and debate key questions about the craft tradition, the current transformation the craft movement is experiencing, and our understanding of what craft is. A casual reception and book signing by Shales will follow the participatory talk.
