Learning a craft can take many years and in an age of manufacturing, is rapidly becoming a lost art. There is beauty and integrity in a handmade object, whether it’s functional or decorative. You will consider the process and product of a hand-made object in a short video about the craft of weaving. Then, this assignment asks you to examine the objects you interact with in your daily life and consider how many were made by hand.
