Guest Speakers:

Alice Robinson is a multi-disciplinary designer, maker and researcher, most well-known for her work at the V&A Museum's Food exhibition, Bullock 374, that showcased a zero waste supply chain from animal to food to fashion. We look forward to finding out more about what is involved in the processes, and what design considerations she had to make.

Zoë Powell is a material researcher who has been working for the last 10 years on facilitating international projects in a variety of industries, with a focus on reduction of waste through circular and creative resource use. She is Head of Outreach and Education at open source data platform Materiom. We will be diving into the considerations needed for designers and makers when using biomaterials.
