Abstract

In this thesis Modernism's lack of involvement with craft, the social theory of consumption, and material feminism, will be used to position craft within existing theory. It is my hope that through this thesis I will demonstrate that craft can and must work with contemporary theory in order to take an active role in its future directions. By relying on the work of theorists, combined with the specific example of the Kootenay Christmas Faire, I hope to initiate a broader debate on the theoretical interest in craft by both craftspeople and those operating within institutions of art.
