Benefits of Making
If our interview with Alain de Botton, co-author of Art as Therapy, whets your appetite for more information on the emotional benefits of craft, read a roundup of research on the subject.

Curating at Corning
"Natural Progression" is our interview with Corning Museum of Glass executive director Karol Wight on the museum’s expansion that will open in March. Assistant editor Dakota Sexton also caught up with senior curator and 2014 ACC Honorary Fellow Tina Oldknow to learn about her plans for the new wing.

Baltimore Bound
If you’re headed to Baltimore for the American Craft Council’s annual show, the show preview section will help you make the most of your time there. And if you want to see the rest of the city, check out our online articles “Action and Traction” and “Baltimore’s Wide World of Craft” for the Charm City lowdown. 

Hot Shop Heroes
There’s healing in the hotshop at Tacoma: In 2013, the Museum of Glass introduced a new educational program, in partnership with a local military base, for soldiers and veterans with physical and cognitive injuries. The eight-week courses in glassblowing and flameworking have proven particularly effective for participants with traumatic brain injuries and post-traumatic stress disorder. Senior editor Julie K. Hanus talks to program manager Greg Owen about Hot Shop Heroes and its recent expansion.

We’ve Got Webinars
This winter we’re on a mission to provide expert advice for artists looking to have a successful show season with our latest round of webinars. Artists can get schooled in Wholesale 101 and social media with Megan Auman, learn from Cindy Edelstein’s business savvy, navigate the waters of intellectual property with lawyers as a guide, and more.
