Jane's Hooked on Crochet

A place to write about my crocheting, things I'm learning, book reviews, ideas, projects in mind, works in progress, patterns, photos, fair entries, whatever...

Contemporary Crafts Museum & Gallery

Discovered this on my Google search for that "punk-doily" maker. At the Contemporary Crafts Museum & Gallery in Portland, Oregon there will be a discussion on Gender and the Evolution of Craft. Wish I lived closer.
"The scope of her lecture is the evolution of craft beyond its many stereotypical iterations – ”women’s work” – and beyond its often disdainful reputation in the high-art world. She will touch on the meta aspects of contemporary craft – namely, the fact that many crafts, particularly those made by women, serve to comment on the domestic realms of the past. She will also reflect on how the new “hipness” of craft is represented in today’s popular culture."
