Participants at the first of a series of Teardown Labs being run across the country spent yesterday evening, Tuesday 4 December, pulling everyday products apart to see how they could be re-designed within a circular economy framework.
Run by Ellen and award winning D&T teacher Steve Parkinson the workshop provided a unique opportunity for D&T teachers, designers and architects to work together on design challenges in an interactive environment and to discuss the opportunities and the future skills required for the transition to a circular economy.
