Craft + Technology Residencies

A residency programme enabling makers to combine their crafts with cutting edge technologies.

A Music Memory Box for people with dementia, a flying lampshade that responds to your presence, and a hug-and-pay alternative to currency: these are all part of Watershed's three month craft + technology residencies...

Craft has always played an important role in society and culture, taking forms that can be challenging, beautiful, useful, tactile and extraordinary. But what could happen if there were more opportunities for contemporary makers to work with technologists? To explore this opportunity, Watershed created this new programme of craft and technology residencies to give three makers the chance to find out.

The Residencies were supported by the Crafts Council and funded by the Esmée Fairbairn Foundation.

Ended in March 2013
