The workshop has taken the technique of felting as a starting point to create a dynamic process reflecting on principles of human and environmental sustainability, specifically as they pertain to Qatar. [...] The process of moving from raw material to product prototype identified the rich seams between academia and industry that this group can return to for further mining.

In five days sixteen people came together to produce two large pieces of handmade felt, the raw material for an exhibition culminating in product prototypes, a custom pocketed "quilt" and modular forms that were used to spell the word "love" in Arabic.
