Description

How significant is the involvement of contemporary designers to the survival and sustainability of traditional craft forms? In a society over-run by modern design, traditional art forms are relegated to mere souvenirs and utilitarian objects. This project was initiated in an attempt to explore the effectiveness of collaborative efforts between designers and artisans. Pedagogically relevant, this exploration will encourage research; learning material culture and heritage as well as encourage the use of alternative materials and traditional techniques for contemporary design.
