Brand News Drop in Workshops

From: Thu 3 December, 11:00am
To: Sat 16 January, 4:00pm

Venue: Market Town Corner, Carillon Court

What if there were no logos and no brands? What would we call products and how would we recognise them? Brand News invites people in Loughborough to take a look at everyday products and have a go at un-branding them.

Throughout December and January artist Kathrin Böhm and designers An Endless Supply will lead a series of hands-on workshops, working with Loughborough groups and individuals, to take everyday products off the shelf and reimagine how they might look: turn coke into brown juice, rewrap chocolate bars and design front pages of newspaper and magazines.

The workshops will collectively re-brand the full product range from a local corner shop, Ashby Square News. As the new looks and individualised brands are created they will go on display in the Market Town Corner shop unit in Carillon Court. On Saturday 6th February the full range of reworked goods will move back into the shop, taking over all shelves and display areas - click here to find out more.

The workshops are free to attend and no booking is required - just drop in! They will be taking place from 11am - 4pm on the following dates:

Thurs 7 January

Fri 8 January

Sat 9 January

We are also running pre-booked workshops for local groups including community groups and schools. The dates and times have some flexibility and the workshop can be tailored to the group taking part. For more information please email Kate Self or call her on 01509 222899.
