The material turn in art is deeply linked to craft processes, materials and ways of making. For Book Talk, we invite people from different fields to read and discuss a single book. How might artists, curators, educators, and theorists respond to a book and potentially use as a tool in their own thinking? Join Stephen Knott, Sarah Margolis-Pineo, Rowland Ricketts, and Namita Gupta Wiggers for their discussion of anthropologist Tim Ingold's Making: Anthropology, Archaeology, Art and Architecture. This first episode was recorded at Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, Deer Isle, Maine in person and via skype in July 2014. Special thanks to Brian R. Jones for sound editing and Calder Wiggers for the music. Visit www.criticalcraftforum for more information.

    Really stimulating ideas discussed here. Haven't read this particular Ingold book but others which seem to through up ideas, like the sticks in the air photo mentioned. For me at the tail end of teaching in museum studies and returning back to making, I am starting to think about things and objects in many different ways, but have been churning over his ideas about line as I am an embroiderer. Line is the process for me.
