The continuation of a unique collaboration between the American Craft Council and AIGA Minnesota, this panel and exhibition will showcase professional designers who also have side practices in craft and work with materials like clay, glass, wood, fiber, and metal. The discussion will be moderated by designer Brent Stickels and feature creative director and painter Sharon Werner, experience designer and furniture maker Teri Kwant, and assemblage artist Lynn Tanaka. The conversation will center around the value of working in three dimensions, the importance of the tangible as part of the design process, and the creative boost that comes from picking up a tool as a method of creative expression and problem solving – instead of using a mouse and monitor.
