Craft and Customization:
Highlighting Denver’s Maker Movement
Phillip Mann, Donnie Criswell, Becky Day, Breton Lujan, Mike Blea
Short: By ignoring the lure of mass production and emphasizing the craft and authenticity of their handmade products, Denver’s professional maker-community has found their niche in the greater design and retail world.
Long: How do Denver’s local makers and retailers survive and thrive in the face of the rapid rise of e-commerce and mass-production?
This panel discussion will feature several prominent local makers, including an industrial designer, a furniture designer, and a fashion/accessory line that have found success in Denver by prioritizing craft and authenticity in their handmade products.
These makers will speak to starting your own business, the Denver maker-community, as well as the role of craft and customization as it relates to their work and business model.

Phillip to lead Floatposium
Rafting + Writing + Art + Science
Colorado Art Ranch is offering its first Floatposia, a delightful adventure for the mind, body and spirit. Floating is fun, writing is fun, art is fun, science is fun; so why not put them together in one trip?
We'll float the Green River for four days and take time to make art with words, rocks, sand, plants and ideas. We have three experts to help us in our play: nature writer Susan Tweit, sculptor Phil Mann, and paleobotanist Ian Miller. No experience necessary.
Phillip will be showing in a two person show at The Dairy Center for the Arts (2590 Walnut Street, Boulder, CO 80302) from January 13th through February 17th.
