Creative Fireworks – Workshops on Design & Innovation
October 11, 2014
Keeping up with the
flavor of the season with diwali just round the corner, the teaching and non
teaching staff of HR College visited the Indian School of Design &
Innovation (ISDI ) for a half-day session on Creative Fireworks - innovative
approach in design.
In line with the décor
& feel of ISDI which represented innovation in various forms, the day
started with a brief tour & introduction to the ideology of ISDI teaching.
The staff was randomly divided into groups, each accompanied by friendly ISDI
students & a faculty that acted as a facilitator for that group.
The tasks assigned to
the groups were unique, original & creative with an innovative approach to
design. They varied from making masks that revealed the true self; to
cutting pieces of cloth to make a dragon fly; to knowing yourself, expressing
emotions that build us through the perception of others with help of pop-up
cards; to creating a Ramayan character & presenting it in the
form of a collage; to an extremely fun & productive session on painting
with stencils on cloth bags; and foot painting! Not only were the
sessions novel and insightful but it was a brilliant bonding activity among the
A truly sparkling session
which made all the staff look forward to more creative fireworks!
