OCAD University teamed up with Toronto Centre for Community Learning and Development (TCCL&D) to pilot an innovative, hands-on design course. Over a period of three months, a group of second-year industrial design students worked with members of the Regent Park Sewing Studio to design and create ‘made-to-order’ textile goods. The finished products (soft goods like hats, bags and other wearables) were displayed and sold at the Re:Location exhibition at Daniels Spectrum, at Regent Park, on December 6.
