DISTINGUISHED EDUCATOR SYMPOSIUM
Watch the symposium below as the 2020 Distinguished educators talk about their career and influence on the field. The symposium also covered the importance of craft education in relation to our current times and the importance of craft as a sense of personal identity.
"I was practically in tears hearing everyone talk about the role of Craft as a 'life force'. Lots of us know the enjoyment craft can bring, but it's paramount to hear such testament to the fact that craft making is a vital way of developing our own identity and extending that out into the world. Consuelo's story and her advice to those students was amazing!" - Rebecca Ravenal
