Craft in Art Therapy: The Transformative Potential of Craft
January 16, 1:00 pm (EST)
January 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Fuller Craft Museum is excited to host a panel discussion based on the new book Craft in Art Therapy: Diverse Approaches to the Transformative Power of Craft Materials and Methods (Routledge, 2020).
Craft in Art Therapy is the first book dedicated to illustrating the incorporation of craft materials and methods into art therapy theory and practice. It demonstrates that when practiced in a culturally sensitive and socially conscious manner, craft practices are more than therapeutic—they also hold transformational potential.
The panel will be moderated by the book’s editor Lauren Leone, and will feature contributing authors Mikey Anderson, Marilyn Holmes, Rachel Wallis, and Sandie Yi.
Panelists will share how they have used craft in their own art and self-care, and in individual, group, and community art therapy practice. Discussion and audience Q&A to follow will explore the therapeutic benefits of craft materials and media, as well as craft’s potential to build community and to support individuals in caring for themselves and each other.
This is a virtual event to be held live on Zoom at 1:00 pm EST on January 16, 2021. You will receive the zoom link with your ticket confirmation via email.
