Craft

My studies at university are heavily, if not exclusively, based on theory. Why not consider the pedagogical—or epistemological—value of craft, as it is done in design?

The knowledge gained through activities that can be described as tactical, everyday, or simply craft is powerful and important, and it must form the foundation of a designer’s education and work—it is how we create ideas; again, how we create culture.
