Make a book and take it away
Graphic designer Alex Bettler will lead on a series of interactive gallery based workshops. As visitors walk through the Alan Fletcher and Robert Brownjohn exhibitions, they will be invited to respond to the work of these two influential designers. At a series of work stations they will be offered a hands-on opportunity to make their own designs which will be bound into a book at the end of the evening.
Furniture designer Martino Gamper will be conducting an informal gallery talk providing an insight into the motivation behind his exhibition Confronting the Chair. Visitors will be able to reserve a timed ticket for this event on arrival. Also on show will be a short film documenting Gamper creating one of his chairs for his project 100 Chairs in 100 Days.
