This workshop allows participants to understand basic concepts of design and apply skills in developing a design range that is relevant to a globalized craft market. The workshop will provide skills and knowledge about design through conversations and visual communication, allowing participants to engage with the creative process and understand what it means to make things. Here designing with the craftsperson is key to understanding action research as opposed to designing for the craftsperson. KAR session invited the local craftswomen to be part of this session, all the corse material and recorded lecture was translated for them on spot. The workshop required students to carry out a very detailed ethnographic survey that focused on culture and crafts.
