Podcast: Object: Stories Of Design And Craft
Host: Lisa Cahill
First Episode: 2021
We all have objects in our lives. Objects can be useful, decorative and sentimental. Meet Australia’s master craftspeople working in ceramics, jewellery, textiles and metal. Why does their work matter? How do they keep going? How does working in Australia impact their work? What’s their advice for makers now? Prue Venables, Jeff Mincham, Lola Greeno, Liz Williamson, Les Blakebrough, Marian Hosking and Robert Baines down their tools and talk with Lisa Cahill. You’ll hear insights, tips and surprising histories of Australian craft and design – like the birth of the Australian Crafts Movement, craft as the longest ongoing cultural tradition in Tasmania, and the infamous craft train.
