Let's Talk About Craft Culture

  • Calgary, AB Canada

How is placemaking shaped by a tradition of craft? From Medicine Hat's Medalta factory, thriving on the rich resources of clay and natural gas in the 1900s, to bespoke, digital means and mass customization, 'craft' defies narrow definition. And yet the ability to think with one's hands is pervasive in our connection to local culture and our natural environment. What traditional ways of making and construction are important to our city? And what economic possibilities does craft and making afford?
