Craft has evolved with the minimisation of a process for simplicity, honesty and its core function. It emerged with needs and limitations, but grew as innovation in materials. Today, craft is progressing as translation of traditional techniques in contemporary materials, yet, somehow is still limited to surface development, urging to transform into something more. How can craft do more? In a future of growing complexities, it has the potential to play a key role in bringing out the integrity of an interior space by innovating with materials and techniques to create an experience where simple craft techniques form the structural as well as non-structural systems enveloping the complete space. The project proposed is a craft school in Dilli Haat, where craftspeople coming from diverse regions can challenge their knowledge and skills by innovating on various craft techniques to form a design language for the contemporary needs, through the honesty and simplicity of craft.
