Course Overview

Design is an inseparable part of everyday life. From interacting with every object one uses to every space one resides in— design has the power to influence our everyday experiences. This influential power of design is also very much relevant when the user is a child. A playful, stimulating and sensitively designed environment can have a positive impact on children’s learning and development. Hence, this short course will introduce basic principles of space and material design with an underpinning of early childhood education and learning through play. 

The course will motivate participants in finding their own creative strengths and enhance those through hands-on exercises. We believe that everybody can design and design does not have to be complex or costly, but it should be coherent with the context. In this process, what we need is an experimental mindset, appreciation for beauty and the courage to fail and try again.
