An essential part of Dubai Design Week is the opportunity to experience the creative process of design. The Making Space offers visitors of all ages the chance to learn from experienced designers, with both drop-in sessions and in-depth workshops. The list of activities includes modelling, sculpting, weaving and sketching. Highlights include the Creative Gym led by IDEO and Palmwood; Ethan & Co workshops that demystify 3D printing; and a weekend programme that includes fun robotics for all the family. Advanced workshops for professional development will be staged at the Re:Urban Studio. These range from topics such as colour psychology, sound-based branding and data visualization as well as skill-related sessions like jewellery making, chair design or painting for interiors.
