Workshops

Part of the Furniture (kids workshop)

Saturday 11 May10.30 – 12.30

Join multidisciplinary designers And+ Studios for a unique workshop exploring furniture manufacturing and 3D Design.

In the spirit of our current exhibition BUILDING, we have created a programme of activities to encourage our visitors to connect with the process of building and making, and get hands-on with live projects in our galleries. Working with cardboard and CNC Plywood shapes participants will investigate the process involved in furniture manufacturing. We will slot, bolt and balance to create a mini-Plywood stool to take home with you!

What to expect

Hands on making: Work across scales – from cardboard maquettes to ply shapes and learn to think both sculpturally and spatially.

Practical expertise: Learn more about the design process, from materials to assembly.

Create your own piece of furniture: Assemble a mini-Plywood footstool to take home with you.

Important information

Please note this morning workshop is a kids session.

Suitable for ages 10+

All children must be accompanied by an adult. You must book a place for both your child and yourself.
