The new materials and techniques of the period of industrialization. During the course we will make a cross-section of Finnish design. We will get to know the work of a designer and learn what makes a product into a classic. During the year, mass production will be discussed and professionals from different fields of design will be presented. We will practise the basics of product design and make mold castings. During the year, children will be taught the skills for building a sustainable future. Together we will discuss the lifecycle and lifetime of objects.
