4th Co-design Workshop in Shanghai
On the 13th of December 2020, our research team, Brunel University and Tongji DESIS held the first community-orientated co-design workshop in Fushun Road Community Centre in Shanghai. The workshop theme was hat knitting, cooperating with Innocent Drink and the local community centre. A professional knit designer was invited as the onsite tutor. A week before the event, we made a call on social media and received more than 50 applications to join the workshop. 26 participants were selected based on their diverse ages and backgrounds. 23 people completed a survey after the workshop. Part of them was a group of senior madams from the local community, and they were skilled in knitting. Some participants have basic knitting skills, while some have zero experience.
