Be a Designer

In the POD we are really looking forward to our forthcoming ‘Be a Designer’ workshops for 11 years +. This week,we have been busy preparing for the sessions, which are led by the cream of local design talent such as local agency, Mercy, who are running the branding and illustration workshops that start on the 25th July. The group have worked with some really big brands such as local indie band, ‘The Wombats, ‘The Arctic Monkeys’ and clothing giant. ‘Diesel’.

The ‘Be a Fashion designer’ workshops kick of the week after with successful label, Nook & Willow and shrewd handmade jewellery and accessories business pioneer, Landbaby

I wish I was 11 so I could take part (seriously!). For now, it’s been fun laser cutting badges for the workshop participants (above)

What the classes offer is some real first hand experience of the business of design, and how you can make a living from it. Each session teaches unique techniques and skills as well as imparting some well earned advice about choosing a career in design.

There are still places available so if you know any budding designers who are interested:
