The day will include:

  • Methods to support and extend creative responses to handling collections, gallery-based research and Your Studio student workshops in the Museum’s inspiring contemporary exhibitions
  • Practical explorations of client design briefs, taking inspiration from our handling collections and the Design Museum’s annual exhibitions, Designs of the Year and Designers In Residence
  • Advice from senior Subject Advisors from qualifications and awarding bodies on how to use your student’s museum study visits to strengthen their portfolio and contextual studies
  • Opportunities to exchange creative ideas with other tutors and design education specialists.
