We will start with a short presentation on biomaterials and sustainable design, which we hope will provide an overview of trends in materials innovation and a deeper understanding of what sustainability means to attendees.
During the workshop we will seek to:
- View design from the perspective of a sustainable future: look beyond existing boundaries to anticipate the needs and challenges facing society, to ensure a healthy and regenerative environment for future generations.
- Decode the concept of sustainability: using design and materiality as a platform to critically question what sustainability is.
- Introduce a variety of materials: application and processing of research methodologies that demonstrate a basic technical knowledge of materials production and development.
- Ability to explore and develop own material experiments, and a cohesive way to document and present samples.
We will end the meeting by getting hands-on, teaching attendees how to make their own DIY bioplastics with non-toxic and healthy ingredients.
*We have a total of twelve places available.
