Through a series of interactive workshops in 2020, we mapped evidences for reimagined future(s) of craft cultures.

Narratives and artefacts built during these workshops are published below under the creative commons to instigate the fringe craft enquiries.

Feel free to use them as you may see fit for your exploration.
