From 6:00 pm till 9:00 pm

Workshop Details

This workshop will let you explore all stages of product development and discover how ideas are turned to a real object, ready for prototyping.

It will drive you through all the steps needed to execute an object.

Experience the relation between design, functionality, and aesthetics. Learn about the material, practice 2D technical hand drawings, 3d modeling software and become aware of the new technologies of fabrication.


By the end of this workshop, you will be able to use your creativity to design a product based on simple forms, express it on paper to scale, in 2-dimensional technical drawings, transform it to a digital model and then select to print, mold or cut and assemble, using the latest fabrication techniques.

Trainer: Suha Atiyeh – Architect, Design Consultant and Instructor.
Seats: 12 Seats (limited)
