This year’s workshop will be all about paper; designers will be presented with a challenge to provide a new use-value to old discarded papers (magazines, newspapers, flyers, catalogs, packaging waste, etc.) by creative recycling.
Aim of this workshop is to offer the possibility of creating and recycling in an inspirational premises of Association MLAZ to designers from all over the Europe, where they will have the opportunity to create on open. Prof. mr. Salih Teskeredžić, product designer from Academy of Fine Arts, will be available for consultation and advice during the workshop to all participating designers.
