is placemaking shaped by a tradition of craft? From Medicine Hat’s
Medalta factory, thriving on the rich resources of clay and natural gas
in the 1900s, to bespoke, digital means and mass customization, ‘craft’
defies narrow definition. And yet the ability to think with one’s hands
is pervasive in our connection to local culture and our natural
environment. What traditional ways of making and construction are
important to our city? And what economic possibilities does craft and
making afford?
