A series of exciting, creative workshop days are coming to Museum at The Mill this September. For any 12 – 15 year olds who are considering art and design as a career, these workshops are not to be missed! The workshops, organised by Community Facility and Newtownabbey Borough Council are sure to bring some fun and creativity to the local area!
Led by practicing designers David Hood and Seainin Passi, the Design Days will give young creatives the chance to design, explore and create using the beautiful surroundings of Mossley Mill for inspiration. Three workshops will give the budding designers a chance to experiment, learn new skills and meet new people, as well as giving the opportunity to work with designers and gain a better understanding of their industry.
David Hood, Graduate of the Royal College of Art says ‘Design Days offers three fun themed workshops which are guaranteed to give a lesson in art and design as well as being lots of fun for all involved. It’s important for those wishing to get into the industry to gain an understanding of the design process used by creative designers and these workshops are guaranteed to give the young students a real understanding of the field.’ From building a forest playground using natural materials from the surroundings of Mossley Mill to bridging the gap to cross the forest river, it’s sure to be an exciting way to learn new skills!
Design Days will run on Saturday 1st, 15th and 22nd September at Museum at The Mill. The full day workshops will run from 11am – 4pm but places are limited. Each student is welcome to join one, two or all three workshops with each day costing just £10!
