Upcycling garments is a popular and inexpensive way to sustainably customize your wardrobe. Give new life to your old garments and textiles with this creative workshop using multiple techniques for sewists and non-sewists alike.

Architecture as Frozen Music; Music as Liquid Architecture - Thursday, 9 a.m. - noon
The relationship between music and architecture is strong. This workshop explores the historical interface between design and music where you will create an architectural show of inspirational architecture to your favorite song. You are encouraged to bring their own laptop with PowerPoint software. If this is not possible, a computer can be provided for you.

Design as Composition - Thursday, 1:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Understanding how modern art influenced today’s architecture is essential to creating a successful building design. This workshop will expose you to modern compositional design principles that will help you understand why award-winning buildings and interiors are considered works of art. This workshop will help you conceptualize and create your own dynamic building plan from modern art.

Designing on the Edge - Friday, 9 a.m. - noon
Architecture is the meeting of the inside and the outside, as well as the interface between the built environment and nature. Understanding this ‘in-between realm’ is essential to producing great design ranging from the scale of a city to a simple wall. For this workshop you will design a house façade (wall) that takes into account functionality, inspirational views, privacy and daylight.

Finishing Workshop - Friday, 1:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.
During this workshop, you’ll have the chance to finish your designs from previous architecture sessions.

Design as Exploration - Thursday, 9 a.m. - noon
Designers begin by brainstorming - “blue sky” thinking in which there are no wrong answers. Using an analog collage approach, you will develop a small piece to begin exploring games and movies.

Design as Storytelling - Thursday, 1:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.
Through stories, we can communicate complex ideas. Using both analog and digital tools, you will develop characters and storyboards for your imaginary game or movie.

Design as Visual Communication - Friday, 9 a.m. - noon

Mapping Interior Place: Evidence, Story, Concept - Thursday, 9 a.m. - noon
The Interior Architecture and Design process begins like a detective story. It involves exploring spaces using all of our senses, asking questions, mapping evidence and traces in a physical space, looking for what is present and what is missing, and generating possible design solutions. After getting inspired, we will develop a mood board for a “Third Place.”

Meaningful Moments in Place and Time - Thursday, 1:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.
What is at the center of any design? What drives design? What inspires timelessness? Human beings are inside interior spaces 87-90% of their lives! As Interior Architects and Designers, our mission is to design spaces that encourage meaningful moments and respond to user needs and aspirations. Bring your imagination and passion to this hands-on workshop.

Reuse, Imagination and Rhythm - Friday, 9 a.m. - noon
Our places and spaces are melodic spatial expressions that are envisioned, designed, created, lived and remembered. Spaces are shaped by our needs and resources, but they also evoke emotional responses. In this workshop, you will explore the interior design process by completing a Creative Design Challenge: reusing coffee cups to create inspired chairs that embody character and tell a story.

Finishing Workshop - Friday, 1:15 p.m. - 5 p.m.
During this workshop, you’ll have the chance to finish your designs from previous interior architecture and design sessions.
