Workshop Description: It’s about being creative as opposed to being able to draw by nature. Just because you can’t draw doesn’t mean you can’t be creative; quite the contrary! We will explore the roots of design: how to determine design space, talking about design elements, their distribution in space, visual balance, etc., and furthermore, talk about how to make modern and abstract designs.

Creativity is not limited to artistic skills like drawing. It encompasses a wide range of abilities to think innovatively, problem-solve, and come up with unique ideas. My goal is to give you a tool box that is useful for thousands of future projects instead making something pretty to bring back home.

On the business side of design thinking, understanding your target audience’s design preferences, needs, and aesthetics is crucial for creating products, designs, or experiences that resonate with them. This process involves delving into the minds of your customers to gain insights that go beyond basic demographics and surface-level data.

Materials to bring: Paper (any printer paper is good enough), 3B (soft) pencils, HB (harder) pencils, pencil sharpener, ruler, compass, eraser, and a bone folder.

Workshop Instructor: The Al Stohlman Award Laureate 2017, Serge Volken, a.k.a. Bigfoot, has dedicated his entire adult life to leather, be it as craftsman, instructor at vocational schools and design schools, or as a researcher in leather archaeology and explorer of techniques and applications of the craft. The quality of his teachings is based on a thoroughly researched basis and structured to be easy understandable. As the first Stohlman Award recipient from the European continent, Serge is an explorer in leather crafts, its history and archaeology, and has been actively working on the most diverse aspects in connection with leather since 1983. Teaching teenagers at a professional school for 8 years, he has developed teaching methods that turn learning into a fun adventure. He is fluent in several languages: German, French, English, Italian, some Spanish and just enough Dutch to save his life. He prefers to explore innovative designs and techniques out of the beaten tracks. His idea of a class is to make a project while also handing you some keys to various techniques for any other subject one would like to create.
