Torch Craft Workshop with Dean Brown
Within the Designmonat Graz 2015 Storialab and Kwirl invited Dean Brown to host a workshop in Graz. In three days the students/designers were able to design and make a Torch Light using hand tools and craft methods. Bringing together hand-carved wood and electrical lighting components, they learned to create a working electrical product that represents an alternative to industrialised manufacturing. Adopting the themes of the Maker Movement and Arts and Crafts Theory, these artefacts bear the marks of their maker and have worth through hand-made qualities.
