SLOW CRAFT takes as its starting point the issues emerging from the broader Slow Movement that developed as a response to our fast-paced Western lifestyles and our consumer culture. 
Slowness is often associated with craft. 
Craft skills take time to learn; craft processes cannot be rushed. 
Makers are developing critical positions in response to our consumer behavior, questioning modes of production through new processes, looking at issues of stewardship and sustainability as well as collective making and the reworking of everyday objects. 

SLOW CRAFT will represent approximately 15 Manitoban craft artists whose work reflects fresh approaches to diverse cultural and material traditions. 

Juried by Sandra Alfoldy, Jennifer Gibson and Alan Lacovetsky.
