  • 10th Annual Craft Think Tank – September 13–15, 2012

    The 2012 Annual Craft Think Tank brought together 17 thought leaders for three days to discuss the need to develop new models of craft apprenticeships. Topics of discussion included the history of apprenticeships, the state of craft education, modes of work, mentorship and influence, transmission of knowledge, equity and legal concerns, and steps to move towards a new, sustainable model.

    The New Apprenticeship Project website is a repository for the future development of this project.
