Making Matters and Awash with Ideas – events at The Cass
In September 2017, as part of London Design Festival, the Cass presented Making Matters, an exhibition exploring the process of designing and making. Twenty design graduates and alumni displayed pieces that included fashion and textiles, furniture, interiors, architecture, jewellery, product and visual communications. The pieces were all produced by socially engaged designers, embodying bold innovation, careful craft and material adventures.
Also as part of London Design Festival, The Cass hosted Awash with Ideas, a day of textile design workshops at a street party on Old Castle Street. The event explored dyeing linen with natural dyes using Shibori techniques. In a series of four 90-minute workshops participants from local schools and communities created their own Shibori patterned sample squares, to be exhibited later at The Cass.
