Booking for this event is now open. Please book using your online login.
Create a series of 'bodged' inventions through intuitive hands-on making using everyday materials and low tech processes. Jasleen makes objects made from found materials that reference everyday habits rather than formal etiquette, 'built for how we do things, not for how we should be doing them'.
Jasleen Kaur is an artist and designer based in London. Having been brought up in a traditional Indian household in Glasgow, she is fascinated by the continual evolution of people and cultures, and their ability to adapt to new environments whilst keeping their traditions and subtle habits. By designing and refashioning objects, she traverses cultural boundaries and subverts traditional notions of use. Jasleen is a visiting lecturer at the Royal College of Art and devises workshops and programmes for the Victoria & Albert Museum, Museum of Childhood, Crafts Council and Sorrel Foundation.
