Event Details

Future designers can develop their skills while having a fun day out at The Design Museum’s holiday camps. Two workshops, running during the May half term, connect design with young people’s passions, helping them learn new skills while exploring the museum’s exhibitions.

Camp 1: Design a Sustainable Shoebox City on Tuesday May 31st, 10am to 4pm

Become a Climate Champion for the day and come up with a design for a climate- friendly city. In this workshop, participants will learn how to develop design concepts and creative solutions, as well as what it takes to bring your project to life by working in teams. At first, explore examples of different cities from around the world to understand why designing for climate change is important. Then, learn about sustainable materials and how to make a 3D-model using recycled and waste materials.

Camp 2: Produce Your Own ASMR Soundscape on Wednesday June 1st, 10am to 4pm

Experiment with instruments, found objects and electronics to record, edit and mix an ASMR soundscape. How does sound relax us? Do we listen with our ears or our whole body? Have you ever heard a sound that has brought you a sense of calm? Or even made your skin tingle?  This workshop introduces young sound and music enthusiasts to the world of ASMR with sound and performance artist Lou Barnell. Participants will create their own ASMR soundscapes inspired by the exhibition and learn about listening and relaxation techniques.  Then, explore the Design Museum’s exhibition ‘WEIRD SENSATIONS FEELS GOOD: The World of ASMR’, and a range of instruments and objects to experiment with sound recording. No experience or prior knowledge in music-making or production is needed.
