Design Week promotes design related events taking place in Ireland. There are walks, talks, launches, debates, clinics, exhibitions, and workshops. Design Week, originally an initiative of the Institute of Designers in Ireland has grown to include numerous design organisations, academic institutions, local authorities, collectives and individuals all organising design related events across the island.
Design Week takes place this year from today the 4th-10th November. There are two really interesting looking and free workshops for families and teens taking place this weekend during Design Week in Dublin.
The first one is for families and it is called ArchKIDtecture: family design workshop – you learn to design your own house. It is on in Malahide Pastoral Centre (Saturday 9th November: two workshops at 2-3.30pm and 3.30-5pm).
There is also a teen focused workshop on creating architectural installations in IMMA which is run in association with Irish Architecture Foundation called IAF at Imma: Teen Create which takes place from 2-4.30pm.
