Creatives of all ages enjoyed this hands-on "Inventing with Materials" workshop
VCD faculty Inna Alesina conducted an "Inventing with Materials" workshop at the North Avenue Knowledge Exchange, which provides opportunities for members of the Station North community to teach and enroll in free workshops. During the workshop, participants learned to approach design problems from different angles and perspectives by using common materials.
Inna notes that "inventing with materials is a powerful tool for generating innovative ideas that would be hard to create using any other method. Not only an engaging and fun activity, this "boot camp" for structural design communicates unique ways industrial designers think."
The day of free teaching and learning built upon the Baltimore Free School, a project of Red Emma’s Bookstore & Coffeehouse.
