Product Design course for young people

Last week we ran another Product Design Course at our digital manufacturing space KWMC: The Factory, this time for young people aged 16+ who were interested in creating original products. The two-day course provided a fun and educational introduction to design and production.

The first day gave the group a comprehensive introduction to Inkskape – design software that allows the user to create and edit graphics – and the course participants came up with a variety of concepts to test out. Later in the day the group visited  Think Image, a company also based at Filwood Green Business Park that offers bespoke branding, graphics and installations. The team at Think Image explained how their organisation started and afterwards the group met up with local graffiti artist Jody who talked about his creative process.

On day two the group put the skills they’d learned into action, each creating a picture frame and a clock. Using their new knowledge of the design process and The Factory’s laser-cutter they each mae a practical and artistic piece of work.
