IPaT Thursday Think Tank: Creating a Crafts Research Community at Georgia Tech

IPaT Thursday Think Tank

Across Georgia Tech, crafts like knitting, sewing, and quilting have inspired researchers in their work. From craft practices and their relationship to design to the material properties of the results of these processes, crafts are a lens for research and education, and much more. We invite researchers from across campus to join us at this Think Tank to meet other interested colleagues and discuss opportunities for collaboration.  
Everyone is invited to share their interests in a two-part structure (taking at most 3-4 minutes), a quick overview of what you have to offer with your research, and what you're looking to find within the Georiga Tech community. We’ll use the remainder of the time to connect people based on what they do and what they're hoping to find in partnerships.
