Free Eco-design Sessions
Over the last year Terra Infirma has provided technical input and training sessions to the Dott07 programme, or Design of the Time 2007 to give it its full title. Dott 07 is “a year of community projects, events and exhibitions based in North East England that explore what life in a sustainable region could be like – and how design can help us get there”. This month Dott is cumulating in a large design festival on the Gateshead Quayside by the famous Baltic ‘art factory’ and the Millennium Bridge. The festival runs from 16-28 October and highlights the various projects undertaken from the School’s Eco-design Challenge to the Community Food project.
On 25th and 26th October, I’ll be running some free eco-design workshops for novices, children (13+) and families. There will be two workshops on each day, starting at 10:30am and 1:30pm. The sessions will be fun and light hearted, but informative. If you are interested, simply drop in and take part.
