Join V&A East for a day with designer Andu Masebo in creating and imaging new objects, perfect for those interested in furniture, product, and industrial design.

You are invited to design and make at scale from a range of pre-made shapes.

You'll will be requested to bring along a small, inexpensive object that you particularly enjoy or that you use every day.

You'll presented with an array of pre-made shapes that you will be able to use as building blocks to assemble into objects of furniture. The key to the workshop will be making something for a specific context. Something you can use every day, that you can take home. It's an opportunity to showcase creativity with thinking and making by working closely with designer Andu Masebo.

You'll learn about product, furniture, and industrial design in a studio where you can re-discover purpose with bespoke existing materials.

This workshop is for 16-21 year olds and will take place at AGO7 Hackney Bridge (below the Good Growth Hub), Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, arrival information will be sent to attendees ahead of the event.

This workshop has been produced by V&A East as part of Upstart Creative Careers Festival 2022.
