Kidesign is a creative organisation that specialises in educational games and toys for children. Kidesign projects aim to teach creative thinking and problem solving skills and inspire the next generation of designers, architects and engineers.
Kidesign enables learning through making and uses technology such as 3D printing and CAD software as a creative tool to reconnect the digital and physical worlds by teaching practical 21st century skills. Since 2010 Kidesign pioneered creative 3D design workshops for children through which we have gathered invaluable research and experience. Thousands of boys and girls around the world who participated in Kidesign activities helped us develop a formula for an educational process that is collaborative, cross-disciplinary and fun. In 2015, we launched the first product for schools - Kideville, a city design project for children, with an innovative term-long 3D design curriculum developed for teachers and educators.
Much like a game, each kid is assigned a creative mission, based on their interests, that takes them through a full design and project management process. The teacher curates this journey that includes research, ideation, sketching, CAD modelling, 3D printing and presenting. Kidesign inspires students to obtain creative skills and knowledge and pursue careers in design, technology and engineering.

Christopher Baxter
Christopher Baxter is a multi-disciplinary artist working in a variety of materials. His work focuses on traditional drawing and sculptural practice, using many different natural and man-made materials in unusual ways often playing with our preconceived notions of them. A key theme in Christopher's work is one of growth and decay, and our own impermanence.

Barry will be using the studio to make his large style, collaged, multi media paintings. He will be focusing on using the space together with community participation via workshops in the space.

Brunskill & Grimes
Brunskill and Grimes is a collaboration between Andy Brunskill and Jimmy Grimes working across theatre, parades, events, film, tv and veterinary research. We make work with animal perspectives as the starting point for narrative. Our work is devised and always has at least one puppet at the centre of our stories. We like strong visuals, epic music and work which everyone can enjoy and creating unique interactions and experiences with puppets.
We cemented our relationship working as Associate Director and Puppet Director of War Horse in the West End and since then we have created work for venues including The Young Vic, the Orange Tree and the egg at Theatre Royal Bath and created parades for companies including Longleat Safari Park and Meadowhall Shopping Centre.We like to develop work of all sorts of scale and ambition and when we're not making a show we're researching and developing a number of projects and ideas.When we're working together Andy directs and writes and Jimmy designs and directs the puppetry. We make our shows through a long, collaborative approach with designers, composers, academics, actors, puppeteers and a whole range of artists through our unique process. We always push our own creative preconceptions with every project. We also like working with new people and frequently train actors and puppeteers through our process.
Matt + Fiona
How many young people look around them and feel like they have had a say in what they see?

We ask young people how their built environment might be improved and empower them to bring that vision to life. Each project has a clearpathway: Briefing • Design • Fabrication – with the children and young people at the centre of every stage.
