Furniture making workshop in the WerkStadt

Free admission

Viktoriastr. 5
45327 Essen

The workshop is free of charge
Work material will be provided

The Werkstadt is regularly a learning space for time-honoured as well as current cultural techniques. Contemporary skills in technology, culture and art are interwoven into individual work forms and concepts to meet the challenges of everyday life - from learning digital applications to cooking traditions to handicraft experiments. In various workshops, sources of local knowledge are taken up, passed on and applied anew..

In a 2-day workshop, students of the Folkwang University of the Arts team up with interested local participants to design and build wooden seating furniture. In addition to practical exercises in design and craftsmanship, they will also approach historical cultural and theoretical aspects of the topic of 'sitting'. The goal of the workshop is for each team to design one individual piece of seating furniture. 

With Dustin Jessen and students of the Department of Design, Folkwang University of the Arts
