In this hands-on workshop, you are a design adventurer looking 10 years out to the year 2032. To respond to human needs and the realities of climate change, we will create forward-looking product ideas. Today, it’s not about adding more to an already overwhelmed world. We have to make use of the things we throw away, extend the usefulness of materials, and design purposeful products that do not deplete or harm our natural resources or species. 

Have you ever wanted to design a product? In this rapid sprint workshop, you’ll learn the fundamentals of industrial design from research to idea discovery to sketching and making a model. And you will strive to create zero waste in your design while we define the product’s regenerative lifecycle throughout the process. In the end, you will make an object that is part of the workshop’s story about a sustainable future and the kind of world we want to create.

Mondays and Wednesdays 5-6:30pm via Zoom | Feb 28, Mar 2, 7, 9 

Optional in-person 2-5pm at the Bodecker Foundation 2360 NW Quimby St | Saturdays March 5 and 12
