    Full description of concept

    Are you fed up with all boring and pretentious glasses available to buy?
    As the expression “ see the world through different glasses” we all have different way of looking at situations in life and work. This workshop aims to give a new look and new perspective of the world. The workshop also aims to create a no limit design approach when we make the glasses.

    Everybody is welcome to our workshop to design and make dream glasses. The workshops starts everyday at 1pm. Also kids in company with parents are welcome.

    How does your dream glasses look like? - fun, diabolic, beautiful, ugly, tuff, hard, loveful, flowerlike, burning, caring, organic, self glowing, ecologic, biomimic, piglike, barock, transgender?
    Here you can create the colour of your future dream world - is it blue, pink, yellow, brown, green, grey, purple, black, scarlet, white, red or multicolour?
    Choose colour and start making your dream glasses for yourself or to give a person who need a different perspective of life.
    You are welcome to take part or lead the workshop. We will prepare the workshops with useful materials and tools. You are welcome to contribute with special material or bring your old glasses to rebuild with new materials. We will have different colours of transparent plastic and materials for frames and useful tools. We start workshops with idea sketches and then start to make glasses.

    We will celebrate the new and different look at the world with a special Dream Glasses Party one evening/night. To arrange the party we need collaboration with a couple of party/music /DJ borderlings.
    You are welcome!
