Hole & Corner is a magazine about people who spend more time doing than talking, for whom content is more important than style; people whose work is their life – stories of dedication.

Hole & Corner celebrates a new artisanal movement for a modern, savvy consumer who cares more about the finer details: specifically, where things come from and how they are made. This neo craftsmanship is the antidote to disposable culture and empty consumerism, and places greater value on buying less but buying better. It is about the appreciation of provenance in goods in the same way we have seem the explosion of interest in the provenance of food. It is about an understanding of and dedication to integrity and authenticity in the making process.This is a new interpretation of luxury for the 21st century: one that supersedes the empty material obsessions with logo and surface for something deeper and more meaningful, placing value in the craft itself and in being able to trace every stage of a product¹s development, knowing that each of those stages are considered to perfection.This appreciation of craftsmanship is not a trend so much as a movement. It marks a paradigm shift requiring academic underpinning.

In conjunction with AFFINITY WITH PLYMOUTH UNIVERSITY and Hole & Corner we invite you to step into this role and join us in a series of workshops and talks. 

This event is open to creative industry professionals, academics, researchers, students and friends. The interview session will be followed by networking.
