Location: Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre

A Handmade Assembly comes to an end on Saturday evening with a closing address delivered by Danielle Hogan at Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre. The closing address will be a collection of thoughts inspired by what Hogan has observed over the course of the four-day festival, and may offer some insight into the role the handmade plays in contemporary culture. Karaoke will follow.
