BELFAST, Maine — Waterfall Arts has revised the schedule for the CONFLUX: Deep Craft Symposium so that the morning keynote address by Wowhaus founders Scott and Ene Osteraas-Constable and the afternoon workshop will take place Saturday, Nov. 15.

The price for the two Saturday events including a catered lunch is $50, with half-price admission for students. All events will take place at Waterfall Arts Belfast at 256 High St.

The symposium starts at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 14, with a panel discussion led by the Constables. Panelists include Peter Korn, director of the Center for Furniture Craftsmanship in Rockport; Todd French of French Webb custom boat builders; and Dudley Zopp, painter and installation artist. Admission to the panel discussion and the reception afterward with cash bar is $10.

For Saturday’s keynote address, the artist team of Wowhaus will showcase its decade of environmentally oriented art and design projects, and demonstrate how ordinary people can innovate within their own lives and communities.

Through its Deep Craft Initiative, Wowhaus will share how the tenets of traditional craft and self-sufficiency can play a major role in the creation of new economic opportunities toward a common understanding of how to live well with less.

After lunch, the Wowhaus team will conduct a workshop introducing new methods of collaboration, resource management and sensory engagement. The workshop promises to be fun, challenging and accessible to all ages and backgrounds. No experience is required.
