Caryn is currently studying for an MA Art & Space at Kingston
University. She is interested in the transformation of narrative within
the framework of conceptual art. In particular she is currently
exploring the commonalities between process and craft. Work may be
gallery based but also aspires to reach beyond the limits of this
through the use of social media, public media (radio, magazines, newspapers etc) as well as local interventions within schools, community groups etc.

Amanda Game
Director, The Scottish Gallery, Edinburgh:


'Craft is the knowledge of a language and its expressive possibilities.
Shakespeare’s sonnets; Thonet’s bentwood chairs; Shostakovitch
quartets: all can be described in terms of craft. Human imagination can
use craft to invent freely in the world of ideas, materials and forms.
Thus are the worlds of design, art, engineering, science and
architecture all born of craft.'

Edmund de Waal
Practitioner:

'Craft is a starting place, a set of possibilities.
It avoids absolutes, certainties, over-robust definitions, solace.
It offers places, interstices, where objects and people meet.
It is unstable, contingent.
It is about experience. It is about desire.
It can be beautiful.'
