My Design Your Life workshop was the first one that I’ve run at the V&A. The DYL programme had three workshops, all attended by same group of kids. My workshop was about making your own lamps. We used craft foam to design and build a lampshade.
I have designed a lot of products for kids before but this was the first time that I actually worked together with them. They are so creative and honest. I like their innovative thinking and representational ideas. I learned a lot from them. The dragon lamp, designed by one of the girls, is one of my favourites.
