What is waste useful for? How can we transform everyday waste into new materials? How can we make new materials at home or in the workshop?

This course is about putting sustainability through materials at the hearth of your design practice. We will look at, how to identify and leverage waste materials, the amazing work that designers and others are doing in this field and develop an understanding of how they do the work they do so that you can do it too. You will learn how to select, collect, store and transform waste materials to produce a wide variety of new materials and/or objects.
