My bespoke Sustainable Design Workshop is specially created for art and design students and creatives. The workshop aims to equip the students with sustainable design skills through principles such as up-cycling, zero-waste design, and cradle-to-cradle design, supported by thematic theories.
During this hands-on workshop, the students will learn how to repurpose second-hand textiles and recycled materials using various crafts techniques to create environmentally-friendly designs. They will gain insights into zero-waste principles and learn how to minimise waste throughout the design process while considering the entire lifecycle of a product.
Additionally, the students will be encouraged to reflect on their designs' social, cultural, and environmental impacts and explore how traditional crafts can be integrated into their work to create meaningful and sustainable designs.
This workshop empowers students with the skills needed to create designs that are not only aesthetically pleasing but also socially and environmentally conscious. By participating in this workshop, students will be better prepared to meet the industry's growing demand for environmentally responsible design practices.
If you are a university or art institution looking to provide your students or staff with a unique and impactful learning experience, this bespoke Sustainable Design Workshop is the perfect fit.
