Travel with Moe Johnson on a journey back in time as he discusses his new book, The Potter's Reach in 19th Century Ontario. Lauded as a “tour de force” and based on the author’s forty years of collecting and sixteen years of research, this volume represents the rich visual history of utilitarian Ontario-made earthenware and stoneware pottery.

YP&C EVENT - EVENING LECTURE WITH TORONTO DESIGNER, KARA VERBEEK

Crafting Space: Exploring the Role of the Arts in a Contemporary Architecture Practice

Wednesday, March 20, 2024 - 7 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.

Join the Young Professionals and Creatives (YP&C) for an in-person lecture by award-winning designer & architect, Kara Verbeek, in collaboration with the University of Toronto's Master of Museum Studies Student Association.


What role do the decorative arts, or more specifically, ‘craft’ play in the work of
a contemporary architecture practice? Utilizing historic vernacular and
traditional building techniques, elements of craft can be embedded within the
design and construction of a building itself. On the other hand, while architects
most often design spaces for habitation by people, the design can also be
centered on housing specific artifacts. Discussing the recent works of a local
office, architecture can be seen in relation to its ability to utilize, house, or
perhaps even become a form of art.


Tickets: Free entry for CSDA Members & UofT Students (proof of student card required at the door), Non-Members $10


Registration TBA
