posted in: Workshops | 0

Dates: 14 – 20 August 2016
Tutor(s): Peter Marigold
Type of workshop: Product / Material
Prices: From € 858 to € 1156 (incl. tuition, materials, food, accommodation)

In this workshop we will be working with unusual materials… weird materials… materials that have potential which perhaps have not found a use in the wider world. How can a formless, undefined material become inspiration for a greater design concept? Can we work together to develop and refine ideas based around such materials? From small acorns grow tall oak trees!
