We are proud to be hosting this special masterclass with curator and writer Kevin Murray, The Promise Object: The Social Object Method. Kevin recently published a rallying cry to a return to the meaningful commitment of the promise and in this workshop he wants us to ask “What kinds of accessories help make promises?”
The Promise Object aims to develop the capacity for the design of products with relational value. Jewellery, particularly, is concerned with exchanges between people and this workshop offers a focus to think about what this means for the design process itself.
This one day masterclass will entail a reading assignment, creative stimulus and concept development. Participants will take away from this workshop a pathway to develop new products that meet a real social need.
