Designers from Kingston School of Art will migrate en-masse to Old Spitalfields Market to explore design futures for communities and commerce in the heart of the East End by turning stalls into live making spaces and transforming materials and stories integral to the market into new forms of ‘produce’.
Could waste be extruded into yarn and knitted with? Could footfall data be translated into 3D-printed sculptures and souvenirs? Could the language of locals, young and old, come together on the page using an on-site printing press? Could metal market stalls be deconstructed and played with like jumbo-sized Meccano?
