Workshop - Life With Materials
Now, as ever before, individual choices of material use are gaining more attention as we reach natural resource depletion. The respect and care towards our environment is connected to the understanding of the materialities we live with. With this workshop, we want to give time and focus to being with materials through craft practice and explore the possible processes that emerge with the direct contact and dialogues between the maker and the materials in hands. With the notion of being with we want to emphasize the respect towards matter in general and, through this, raise awareness and questions on an individual level
towards the material surrounding we live in (Aktaş & Groth, 2020). In this workshop, we offer wool as the matter we engage in a dialogue with and through which we will carry a discussion on how our relationship with the environment can be transformed through craft. The aim is to stay with the material interaction without the pressure of producing outcomes with functional qualities.
