By the end of the workshop, participants will have created a new design protocol and language, to empower and be empowered by Planet Earth.

The workshop is looking for students, practitioners and academics of architecture, industrial design, fashion and related disciplines who want to explore experimental ideas and have a hyper-creative, collective design experience.

During the workshop the tutors will train participants in the following skills: drawing; story-boarding; phone video filming; photography; model making; prototyping; fashion pattern making; pattern cutting; sewing; crocheting; laser cutting; CNC cutting; timber joinery; testing and validating designs through objective design analysis.
