The Course

The Canadian (Design+Craft) (History+Theory) Project began years ago when I first began collecting Canadian design and craft. This research collection of hundreds of books, journals, magazines, catalogues, brochures, postcards, labels and other ephemera has been used as a basis for this course.

Fifteen online Lecture-Books share this research and collection. Each week a lecture-book will present Canadian designers, craftspeople, storytellers, historians, scholars, and workers concerned with interpreting, collecting, preserving and perpetuatig Canadian Design and Craft. Thanks to the Inukshuk Foundation and so many others for their contribution to the course (see acknowledgements).
