DIY Design Classics
South Block
30th May – 13th Jun 2014
Designers: Rag & Bone Workshop, Glasgow Wooden Bike project and Kevin Andrew Morris Ceramic Design


This exhibition showcased examples of recent projects and finished previous works from the makers and was a celebration of the current innovative maker culture within the city of Glasgow, uncovering invention, creativity, resourcefulness and a make-do-and-mend approach to problems of everyday life. It considered how we interact within nature and our attempts to contain, harness or even contribute to it through objects in a functional yet playful way, challenging the material and meaning of objects.



Bicycle Trailer Making & Caprolactone thermoplastic product making workshop: Friday 30th May, 3pm – 6pm

Caprolactone thermoplastic product making & ceramic making workshop: Friday 13th June, 3pm – 6pm

Rag and Bone believe in creating an environment where people can feel empowered by doing, making, sharing ideas, knowledge and skills,and encourage people to show their potential rather than focus on what they are lacking or have not got. The general public were given the opportunity to engage, interact, respond and elaborate on the work through these workshops – ‘live’ creative making sessions. The public were invited to make their own trailer or structure with the caprolactone plastic. This material was used to encourage people to re-use unwanted wood and experiment with rapid three dimensional making techniques using a combination of traditional, reclaimed and new innovative materials.
