TALK – Healing hands: Could makers help regenerate the earth?
17:30 – 18:45 GMT, 8 November 2021
As the climate crisis accelerates, sustainable design is no longer enough – we need to restore the damage humanity has done to the planet. To mark the launch of our November/December 2021 issue, we are hosting a talk in which we will meet the trailblazers of regenerative design, who are nurturing the environment through their craft.
Hear from Mexico-based designer Fernando Laposse and New York-based textile artist Shradha Kochhar – makers whose work crosses into the world of agriculture, encouraging the reintroduction of indigenous crops that improve the soil. Also on our panel will be Carole Collet, a professor in design for sustainable futures at Central Saint Martins and founder of its upcoming master’s degree in regenerative design. The talk will be chaired by Crafts editor Malaika Byng.
