Design Snacks Series | Upcycling + Rethinking Waste
How can we reuse old materials to generate fresh ideas? Join designer Nicole McLaughlin for a hands-on workshop exploring techniques for prototyping a design using everyday items. Participants will have the opportunity to work collaboratively, enhance their design literacy skills, and build a network with other participants who are interested in exploring innovative practices for their classrooms and organizations.

No prior experience in design required. Recommended for ages 16+. 

Nicole McLaughlin is a multidisciplinary designer based in New York City.  McLaughlin's accessible, witty, and functional practice serves as a reminder that sustainability is actually an operational philosophy. By transforming discarded objects into works with new, imaginative, and often unexpected utility, McLaughlin shows how a circular approach to design and manufacturing can help us reframe waste as an opportunity. 

 She has partnered with Hermès, Nike, adidas, Reebok, Puma, The North Face, Arc'teryx, Merrell, Christian Louboutin, Crocs, HBO, Calvin Klein, Woolrich, Jacquemus, Opening Ceremony, and Warby Parker. 

Nominated for the Beazley Design of the Year 2020, her work is currently on display at the Design Museum in London. This spring, her work will be exhibited at MAD Brussels as a part of their upcoming show around United Fashion.
