In preparation for The Real Work Experience workshops later this month, last Thursday nine graduate and undergraduate designers took part in an engaging afternoon of workshop training!
Arriving at the thinkpublic studio from Bristol, Brighton, Bournemouth, Glasgow, London, Kent and Leeds our leading designers are each running workshops on Friday 21st November to explore what young designers need to enable them to use their skills for social causes.
After a fun ‘make a sound, pass it on’ icebreaker session, we asked the designers to draw a picture of their workshop (and then humorously offered the opportunity to analyse them). We then briefed the group through the stages of how to run their workshops and gave each of them informative toolkits to take away. Thanks to everyone who came along on Thursday, we hope you had as much fun as we did! There are plenty of photos of the training day here and we wish you all the best of luck for the 21st!
