Saturday, January 16th Guild Meeting - On ZOOM at 10am
Program: Guest Speaker, Erin Miller, Head of Weaving at Berea College
Erin Miller is head of the Weaving department at Berea College in Kentucky. Erin will discuss conceptual art and how she brings her training in art to making products. She says she has many students that don't believe they are artists and she has to help educate them to change this mindset. In addition, we will learn more about Berea College and it’s unique approach to making higher learning affordable for its students.
Look for the upcoming episode of CRAFT IN AMERICA that should air on PBS in December. The episode features Berea College and Erin Miller, who is our guest speaker in January. Here's a sneak peak at the episode: https://youtu.be/ihOPolheXB4
