IIDA NY | Residential ForumModern Makers – Artisans on Fleek
Join us as we dive deep into the life and mind of the modern maker. The evolution of the artisan is a long one, with skills and techniques passed on through the centuries. Today, it’s never been more hip to set up shop and call yourself a maker. But technology, the vagaries of the economy and regional craft trends are shaking up the market. Small-batch yields compete directly with mass production, and the traditional model of the artisan has been upended.
Be a part of our conversation with up-and-coming and veteran local artisans as they let us in on what it takes to find financial stability, stay true to the history of the maker, market the value of hand-made and—perhaps most important—stay true to their creative visions.
