Design workshop in Guatemala


I find myself in Guatemala City, preparing for 20 students to arrive from the department of product design in Norway. Tomorrow morning we get up as early as the birds to travel through beautiful landscapes to lake Atítlan, where we will see some shelter and artesanal projects together with designstudents from URL here in Guatemala City. I look forward to posting beautiful photos from our trip and also from the results of the workshop that we will have at the end of the week.
