Designersblock Visit

We were delighted to have Rory Dodd from Designersblock to visit us at the Red Shed yesterday.

A bit about Designersblock:
Founded by Rory Dodd and Piers Roberts in 1998, Designersblock have produced over 50 major festivals of design, architecture and illustration in the UK and internationally. In doing so they have pioneered the use of transitional architectural spaces for the production of city festivals. Many events take place in derelict or unused buildings throughout city centres. These events, when harnessed to their potential, act as a catalyst for creative engagement and growth, stimulating urban confidence and renewal. Cities recognise creativity as a key driver of regeneration, either through the use of existing underused spaces or in conjunction with bold new planning and construction initiatives.

We had a lovely lunch with the Textiles team followed by a tour of the Red Shed Textiles and Surface Design Studios and the Wood, Metals, Ceramics and Glass, Plastics, Jewellery, Furniture and Upholstery workshops. 

Thanks for coming to visit, Rory!
