Emily Carr University of Art + Design, Vancouver, Canada

New Craft Symposium explores new craft as an emergent consideration that touches a wide range of methods, techniques, practices and processes. It reflects on the contemporary craft of the industry and material practice, design and the arts + crafts.

In this symposium, Nithikul gives her panel presentation entitled "Towards New Craft Knot Practice". The talk is about ways in which she has interpreted and transformed her hand-crafted objects into digitally-fabricated objects using 3D scanning, 3D printing and VR during her residency at the Material Matters Research Centre, Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
