Toy Design

Monday July 15

9:00 AM  –  12:00 PM


Monday through Friday, July 15 – 19 @ 9 a.m. – noon
Cost: $125 ($100 for M members)
This is a 5-day workshop | Ages 8 – 12

Be prepared to play, create, and learn…like never before! Using a multidisciplinary approach, Leon Wang of Firebird Design Lab will challenge students to create a series of personal toy projects. The workshop will engage learners in a rigorous creative process requiring them to consider both the artistic and functional outcomes of their designs. The parameters and resources of their projects are intentionally limited to maximize creativity and problem-solving. Each student will transform the materials at hand to produce multiple toys that express their voice and vision. The workshop’s ultimate objective is to cultivate a sense of purposeful creativity and agency in each student.
