I like the idea of being a craftsman. I enjoy purposeful play with materials and skills and don’t particularly aspire to inform through my personal creative work. I came across this TED talk about craft by Jogge Sundquist who works with wood. It reminds me that art education should not just be about ‘working in the style of‘ an ‘artist‘. There are other pedagogies and practices and we should be concerned that they can be discouraged by our current examination assessment system.
