For this year’s edition of Dubai Design Week, the Making Space offers its most extensive programme of hands-on workshops and activities to date, catering to all ages and ranges of experience.

With a wide, week-long programme of 80+ activities under the theme ’Paper, Plastic + Play’, each activity has been curated with people and the planet in mind, and an emphasis on environmentally friendly materials. Participants will have the opportunity to experiment with ancient as well as innovate ways of making.

Through exploring paper, plastic reuse and playful medium productions participants will gain insights and tools to rethink material potentials and refresh their creative practices.

All workshops are facilitated by independent makers, designers and small businesses working in the UAE.
