Who is participating in werkhouse 2018?

Werkhouse 2018 is for 2nd Year design students. We have selected a group of people from different design disciplines who would benefit from some extra industry experience.

Why only 2nd Year students?

The first Werkhouse weekend in 2017 was open to all students and recent graduates. This year we want all participants to be able to take their experience of Werkhouse back into their final year of study.

What will it cost?

There is no fee for this workshop. Though you will need to cover you own travel and accommodation expenses, and commit your time for the whole weekend.

What can I expect?

We’ll be based in a design studio for the entire workshop. You’ll be working in teams, each led by a design professional. Saturday will be about exploring the problem and generating ideas. Sunday will be about refining, visualising and presenting ideas.

What will I be designing?

This is not a test of your technical or executional skills in a specific design discipline. It is about creative thinking, design process, team working and exceeding client expectations – which are needed in all design studios. 

What will be provided?

We will provide refreshments and a light lunch on both days. There will be WiFi, shared computers and plenty of pens and paper.

What do I need to bring?

Just bring yourself and your commitment. You are welcome to bring your own laptop and we would expect you to have a notebook anyway, but it’s not a requirement.

What if I missed out?

This is the second Werkhouse event and we hope to continue with more in the future. To stay informed of progress and future events, please join us on twitter @WerkhouseBRS or drop us an email.
