Architect Rhiannon Morgan-Hatch (RCA, Other Works) will illuminate the topic of design, materials, space and environment - and how we create environements where we create a sence of space.
The evening's workshops explore light by making DIY pinhole cameras with Rachel Guardiola and space with Jiggling Atoms by creating fantastic mathematical decorations - a suprising but wonderful christmas gift!
