Description

Codesign and SKETCH Working Arts present ‘The Plastic Free Kitchen’, a new wood product line designed and fabricated by SKETCH Artists. Sustainability, functionality, simplicity and craftsmanship are the hallmarks of this work done by an exceptional group of emerging designers. SKETCH is a community enterprise based in Toronto that engages young people living on the margins to experience the transformative power of the arts. Developing design thinking and fabrication skills are at the core of this project as SKETCH develops a model for a new wood based social enterprise at its location in Artscape Youngplace. This project was done in collaboration with the students from the OCAD University’s Participatory Design class. The students developed companion products, branding and packaging and a design for a mobile sales kiosk. Sketch artists and the students worked together closely, exchanging ideas and supporting each other as the work was developed. Toronto based designers and the One Of A Kind Show have also provided their expertise making this a true strategic collaboration between many partners. Thank you to the Ontario Arts Council for funding this project.
