Product Design With Artist Sarah Staton

Join celebrated artist and Head of Sculpture at the Royal College Of Art, Sarah Staton, as she leads this three-day product design course unlocking the potential of local materials.

Places limited to 4 students, price includes full board at The Farmer’s Arms, living above the workshop in The Farmer’s Loft with food cooked by Chef Alistair Debling.

A different kind of residential workshop, students will work with Sarah to design and develop new products drawing from available materials and resources around The Farmer’s Arms and engaging the skills of local crafts people and participating students. Working in The Farmer’s Arms pottery, you’ll explore new ways of working with clay, slate, wool and wood.

Alongside Sarah, you’ll work with The Farmer’s Arms workshop team, who will introduce new techniques and skills to support students to develop product protypes. Tom Philipson, Simon Athersmith, Pippa Martin, Francis Lloyd-Jones and Adam Sutherland will all contribute to the making process offering help and instruction with materials and techniques.

Understanding the thinking and adding to the evolution and development of the works with Sarah and The Farmer’s Arms team, through the action of making, you’ll be set tasks to collaboratively design and progress new products that could later form part of The Farmer’s Arms product range.

Venue: The Farmer’s Arms, Lowick Green, Nr Ulverston, LA12 8DT

Course price: £380 including full board & meals | Non-residential but including meals £250
