RMIT Art & Design Experience Day Workshops
This workshop introduced four groups of high school seniors to the process of design sketching and prototyping by asking them to design and make a lampshade. Using paper to prototype lampshades, students were able to experiment with translating their drawings into real life. The workshop was conceived and facilitated with Glenn Stephenson.

Designing Digital Archives
Designing Digital Archives was an upper-pool studio at RMIT Industrial Design. The brief required an interactive solution that would showcase the unique artwork and textiles of Dr. Frances Mary Burke to primary and secondary school students. Housed in the RMIT Design Archives, there was a need to help the students engage with Dr Burke’s textiles while they were in storage or behind a display case. The solution sought to explore the process of patterns and shapes using a touch display surface and tangible markers. More than one student could engage with the exhibit at once.
