Craft Aotearoa Charitable Trust and the Dunedin School of Art at Otago Polytechnic - Te Kura Matatini ki Otago are delighted to invite all those interested in New Zealand craft to the Dunedin launch of the 2012 National Craft Research Project.

This is rare opportunity to share your views on craft practice in New Zealand, and it is the first major craft research project to be undertaken in recent years. The research project aims to identify how the wider public engages in craft activities as well as profiling the craft sector itself. A broad range of views are sought from members of the public interested in craft, craft practitioners, students, teachers, craft industry groups and organisations, craft galleries and retailers, curators, online craft communities and more.

Come along and share your views and then take the online survey at:
