Steven Earl Weber, designer and founder
Method Craft Design is located on the first floor of the American Silk Studios Building in the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia.
Method Craft was founded in 2018 by artist Steven Earl Weber. With over 20 years of experience as a sculptor & designer, Weber has garnered a wide range of skills both in and out of the studio. He has worked to design and facilitate exhibits of his own as well as for other artists with various art organizations, both nationally and internationally. He was an exhibition designer for a contemporary art museum and a gallery director/curator of two commercial galleries. He was production manager for Golden Globe Nominee, Michael Nyman, building his multi-screen video and audio installations in Miami during Art Basel and at Televisa Television Studios in Mexico City for the opening celebration of Zona Maco. Weber has designed sets and costumes for both the Pennsylvania Ballet at The Academy of Music and Ballet X at the Wilma Theater. It is this wide array of experiences that inspired Weber to start Method Craft Design LLC.
