Offcuts is a creative game concerned with the topic of waste in the creative/production industries. Led by Assembly, a collection of like-minded multi-skilled peers from South-London, the event is a hands-on exploration of material, form, shape, and how we play with these factors in the creative process. For this workshop at the Balfron tower Assembly will be asking participants to use these materials. And to explore architectural form and its effects on the immediate environment of the people that inhabit these buildings.
