Design Workshops

Design Workshops

Since 1924, RSA Student Design Awards participants have risen to the challenges of their times.

This year, we invite students and recent graduates (within one year) from around the world to join us online for free, interactive design workshops.

Our workshops will introduce you to research methods, tools and tips for improving your RSA Student Design Awards entry or your everyday creativity.

So valuable being able to discuss a project together and bounce ideas off each other!
