What are the links between cognition and skilled use of the hands? This presentation explores the resurgence of both popular and intellectual interest in Craft as well as historical systems such as Educational Sloyd that believe in the importance of hand-skills for the development of the whole person. Harrington aims to encourage dialog around the pivotal roles that craft and skill play even in an age of digital fabrication.
