Eco-Sustainability in Furniture Studios: A Starting Point for Change led by Craft In America
Artists can innovate through this climate crisis and lead change. This interactive session will examine ways that artists are currently making their studios and practices as eco-friendly as possible through concrete, adoptable ideas. Presenters will provide insight and pinpoint finite efforts being made. Attendees will then share what they are doing in their own furniture studios so that others can learn from these ideas. A starting point is possible! This event was live streamed on June 15, 2021.
This event will spotlight Craft in America’s development our online Artist Studio EcoGuide. This accessible resource, for all artists, across media, will provide adoptable ideas for improving the eco-footprint of art making. The launch of this vital project presents an opportunity for artists and the public to weigh in and generate a blueprint that can make an impact.
Artists, as well as the general public, are invited to share ways in which artists can make their practices and studios more eco-friendly. These ideas will be collected and compiled into the EcoGuide, and made available in perpetuity on craftinamerica.org. Check out our blog for information on how to provide tips.
This event is in conjunction with the Furniture Society. The Furniture Society is the premier non-profit organization representing, promoting, and connecting furniture makers, designers, collectors, curators, educators and manufacturers from around the world.
