Come and find out more about the circular economy and the importance of creative and innovative thinking in design and technology, in a free hands-on workshop.

Hosted by Dame Ellen MacArthur and award-winning D&T teacher Steve Parkinson, Teardown Lab provides an introduction to the circular economy and relates this to product design. During the session, participants will have the opportunity to disassemble everyday products and explore how they can be re-designed for a future of finite energy and resources.

We are running 3 workshops across the UK in December. To find a workshop near you click on the image to the right.

The workshop is free, but places are limited. To secure your booking contact Jo Miller
