Holiday fun at Young Designers Workshops

Adding to the excitement mounting around the World Cup, Design Indaba is offering creative holiday workshops for high-school learners.

Adding to the excitement already mounting in the city around the World Cup, Design Indaba is offering high-school learners another fun and creative way to keep busy.

Taking place between 15 June and 8 July 2010, the Design Indaba Young Designers Workshops will expose learners to a range of career opportunities within the creative industries, all while learning new skills, meeting new friends and having lots of fun.

Parents and teachers are welcome to also purchase a ticket to attend the workshops with their children and learners, making it an ideal opportunity to spend quality time together while creating something beautiful.

The five different workshops cater for all styles and tastes. Choose between a ceramic workshop, a leather design workshop, a photography workshop, a food workshop and a jewellery workshop. All the workshops are presented by practitioners who are really on top of their game in their specific industry, promising that they’ll be passing a great deal of their creative know-how onto participants.

The best part is that participants get to take their unique creation home to show off to friends and family. It could even count as one of the first pieces in a budding portfolio.

Or really get the creative energy flowing and attend them all – participants will soon be the most versatile young designer around!

Booking for the workshops opened on Monday 24 May 2010. For more details or to book, go to Prices range from R250 to R350, depending on the workshop.
