Craft Schools: Boston Nexus

Presented by Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts

Online Program

May 2, from 6:00PM to 8:30PM



Boston is a city admired as a nexus of craft. A network of craft schools holds this rich history, supports its current dynamism, and pioneers its future possibilities. These sites of knowledge transfer have long been places that embody educational idealism, and where art, craft, home, and industry converge. Join MFA curator Michelle Millar Fisher as she moderates a conversation with:


Dr. Mary Grant, President of Massachusetts College of Art and Design,

Sarah Turner, President of North Bennet Street School

Alison Croney Moses, Associate Director, Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts

With respondent Dr. Juliana Rowen Barton, Director of Center for the Arts at Northeastern University.


This conversation is hosted by the city’s oldest craft education site, Eliot School of Fine & Applied Arts and is supported by Haystack Mountain School of Crafts.
