Deirdre Nelson - Arctic Crafts

by Music Tech Fest | MTF Podcast

Deirdre Nelson is an Irish textiles artist and designer based in Scotland. She has been working with the Circumpolar Crafters Network, alongside Inuit and Sami traditional craftspeople, learning to make things from the natural resources around them in the harsh environments of the very far north. She believes that we can learn important lessons about who we are, how we can live in the world and what our legacy can be from these ways of working and living - and that goes especially for hackers, makers and electronic artists.
