Digital Craft ≠ digital fabrication.

Technology ≠ new. Craft ≠ old.

Both craft & technology have rich histories. Both have open futures.

Etymologically, technology is the study of a skill.

Craft is the mindful application of a skill.

A technology can be a tool, a medium, or both.

Craftsmen explore the limits of their tools and media.

Digital Craft is no paradox.


Digital craftsmen are makers before anything else.

Making is a way of thinking, reflecting, and connecting.

Making is connecting ideas to media.

No work of craft exists in void.
