Your studio is the museum’s new Further Education workshops programme for level 3 design students. The programme has been created and mapped to core BTEC curricula to give an insight into the professional conditions and responsibilities of designing and to ‘demystify’ aspects of the industry using the museum as a creative hub, encouraging students to adopt a playful attitude matched by a rigorous approach to design.
The Idea Generation
Every Friday during term time
FE colleges and 6th form centres are invited to visit the museum for this specialist workshop using the Design Museum as a research site to explore and collaboratively develop a range of design ideas, developed through ‘analogue’ rapid prototyping. Each workshop will culminate in a collaborative outcome or set of outcomes that enable learners to reflect on their process and consider how divergent thinking and a playful approach can enhance the level of innovation and commercial viability of their designs. It has been carefully formulated to support Level 3 vocational learners from BTEC design causes, though it is also suitable for AS/A-Level and Foundation students.
The workshop is mapped to the following BTEC Units:
Unit 01: Visual Recording in Art and Design (Compulsory)
Unit 02: Materials, Techniques and Processes in Art and Design (Compulsory)
Unit 07: Design Methods in Art and Design (Design pathway)
Unit 08: Design Principles in Art and Design (Design pathway)
Workshops take place on Fridays in two time-slots:
Morning workshop: 10:30am-12.15pm
Afternoon workshop: 12:45pm-2.30pm
£10 per FE Student
