Traditional Senegalese crafting workshops on offer at LCC this Autumn

London College of Communication is opening its doors and offering free comic-making, painting and fabric jewellery courses this autumn – including traditional Senegalese crafts.

The series of public events is part of this year’s London Design Festival’s exhibition Everything Happens So Much, throughout September and October.

In a ‘cell-painting’ session, amateur artists will be making decorated sheets of acetate using their own designs or with existing templates, modelled on glass-painting found in Dakar, the Senegalese capital.

The fabric jewellery workshop will also teach traditional some traditional Senegalese crafting.

Dr Nicky Ryan, Dean of Design at London College of Communication, said: “Visitors can expect to be engaged by a variety of stimulating shows, activities, performances and talks.

“We hope to give people a sense of the scope of our teaching, research and practice and how we see our role as educators in terms of the wider civic, social and ethical responsibilities that we share.

“I hope that visitors will take away an understanding of what we do as a Design School: the issues we struggle with, the failures we learn from, the opportunities we embrace, the pleasures we bring, the problems we solve and the questions we raise.

“Most of all I hope they will see the potential that a university education in design offers and how it can enhance not only the lives of our students but also the wider communities and environments they work within.”
