The Design Museum’s workshop for families works in the spirit of the Design for Every Body exhibition. In a joint workshop for a child and an adult, we enjoy doing things together in a creative and playful way through various material experiments and an own design task.
The human figure is a common subject in design products and objects. The Design for Every Body exhibition brings together examples from the Design Museum’s collection of characters who have appeared in the history of Finnish design. Who has been seen worthy of a sculpture? What do people look like and in what roles?
In design workshop, it is the turn of children and adults to design and execute their unique human figures. We dive into the world of paper cutting, and we design and make human figures together by cutting from paper. At the beginning of the workshop, the dimensions of a person are introduced, and then human figures are created by cutting and gluing paper.
The workshop works on a non-stop basis, which means you can jump in at any time! However, you can secure your place by registering in advance. The workshop instructors guide the group in Finnish, English, Russian and French. The workshop can accommodate 12 participants, and the child will participate in the workshop with an adult.
Welcome all bigger and smaller designers!
