Namita Wiggers Talk: Residencies as a Teaching Model
The Ash Street Project is pleased to host Namita Wiggers in a talk about residencies as a teaching model, and how her experiences are shaping a new, innovative masters program in Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College.
When a new MA in Craft Studies was announced at Warren Wilson College, response nearly crashed the server. Come learn about this exciting low-residency graduate program – the first of its kind – and see what Namita Gupta Wiggers has been up to the last six months through her travels and residencies at Watershed, Ox-Bow, and Norwegian Crafts (with a dose of Paris and North Carolina in there, too!) Her travels become the students' journey with faculty from across the US and abroad to develop this new field of craft studies.
Namita Wiggers is the Director of the MA in Critical and Historical Craft Studies at Warren Wilson College. She’s taught in the AC+D program, at OCAC and at PSU. She directs Critical Craft Forum, and from 2004-14 served as the Director and Curator, Museum of Contemporary Craft here in Portland, OR.
