Craft in History

Human beings have made things for as long as we’ve been human, from practical tools for survival to objects whose only function is decorative delight. While it’s easy to find out more about the famous paintings and sculptures of the past, the objects that furnished people’s homes and served everyday functions are often just as beautiful and skillfully made. Join us for an illustrated journey of craft, design and the decorative arts, from flint axes, to Chelsea porcelain, to knit bombing. This is a course for anyone interested in the subject, regardless of whether they’ve ever studied it or not.
