Co-Design and 3D Printed Clay

Book Now

A new craft co-design workshop which gives participants the opportunity to co-create a series of 3D printed ceramic objects, explore issues concerning sustainability and consumerism, and learn about the design process.

The workshop consists of two activities; a co-design drawing game and clay 3D printing. The co-design drawing game is made to encourage creativity and co-create unexpected forms. During the 3D printing activity, participants will 3D print their co-designed object. The resulting vessels do not look machine manufactured or visibly handmade instead they have a hybrid style.

By connecting participants to the design and fabrication of designed objects, they will have the opportunity to manufacture the objects at a local level, explore the materials used, their effects on the environment, and be given the opportunity to choose to reuse the material in the printed object instead of firing the clay.
