A journey into the hand, heart and Mind of Craftsmanship
What makes a craftsman or woman, or what does an organisation built around a craft ethos look like? And why does the theory and practice of craftsmanship offer so much possibility to ourselves today – either as individuals or as organisations?
This is an invitation to learn the philosophy and practice of how and why craftsmanship offers us a better way to think about ourselves, how and why we work, and how the crafted organisation makes a difference big or small. This is a journey of the hand, the heart and the mind. Because without all three you will never become a craftsman or indeed a craftswoman.
The 4 sessions will comprise of the following
- The heart of craftsmanship – For more information click here
- The hand and mind of craftsmanship – For more information click here
- The tools of craftsmanship – For more information click here
- Crafting transformational change
In this final session you are in competition: put into teams and given a design / innovation challenge. With your newly acquired skills and capacity to create and make, the teams will work towards delivering an innovative response and prototype a doable solution – because ultimately it is what you create that decides what next looks like.
Your journey into craftsmanship
We are looking for people that want to explore and embody the idea and possibilities of craftsmanship to become more creative, curious, resilient, and also better leaders.
You will meet and work alongside some extraordinary people – practitioners’ of their craft who all embody the hand, the heart and the mind. And with them you will be coding and decoding, working with Samurai warrior philosophy, cooking as a team, improvising, prototyping, building a thing, deconstructing a thing. And applying your new learning’s to real world issues. We promise you a real journey into the philosophy and practice of craftsmanship.
