This workshop took the technique of felting as a starting point to reflect on principles of human and environmental sustainability, specifically as they pertain to Qatar, and to locally sourced materials. The process of moving from raw material to product prototype identified the rich seams between academia and industry that this group will return to for further mining.
The objects in the exhibition emerged from the process of exploration, material experimentation, sustainability analysis, conversation and collaboration within the workshop.

Tasmeem Doha is the international art and design conference held biennially at VCUQatar. Over the past eight years, Tasmeem has gathered scholars and practitioners of art and design to discuss critical issues and engage with students and local communities.
The 2013 conference addresses the dual themes of hybridization—interdisciplinary or collaborative work - and making - the production of an outcome or deliverable to be disseminated in the final phase of the conference.
