Craft Schools: Boston Nexus Recording Available

During Boston Design Week 2023, we hosted a conversation on craft featuring centuries old institutions. The full recording is now available for watching and sharing!⁠

Boston is a city admired as a nexus of craft. A network of craft schools holds this rich history, supports its current dynamism, and pioneers its future possibilities. These sites of knowledge transfer have long been places that embody educational idealism, and where art, craft, home, and industry converge. Join MFA curator Michelle Millar Fisher as she moderates a conversation with:⁠

Dr. Mary Grant, President of Massachusetts College of Art and Design⁠

Sarah Turner, President of North Bennet Street School⁠

Alison Croney Moses, Associate Director of Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts⁠

With respondent Dr. Juliana Rowen Barton, Director of Center for the Arts at Northeastern University.⁠

This conversation is hosted by the city’s oldest craft education site, Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts and is supported by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.⁠
