An ode to the macrame plant hangers that defined 1970s home style, Kia has designed Kork as a modern update of traditional plant pot holders. Sustainable cork balls reflect contemporary interior design trends and can be adjusted to fit pots of many sizes. Make your pick of one of the many colours of paracord and Kia will take you through how to make your own hanger and get your plants off your surfaces and into the air.

Kia is a Danish goldsmith turned designer turned inventor turned cake maker. She has been living in East London for over six years, after moving here to study at the Royal College of Art. She is the founder of the multidisciplinary design brand KUFstudios, where she coming up with new projects by experimenting with materials, transformation, light, and everything else that catches her interest. She never really fitted into any of the boxes available so she decided to make her own instead. Here she is making jewellery, making hanging sculptures, developing her patented window blinds system, consulting in idea development, making cakes that looks like geometric marble sculptures, foldable string structures and - workshops.

Being an expat herself (like the rest of London's population basically) Kia is a big fan of meeting people out and about as well and learning new stuff and has therefore combined the two in her workshops. Making something with our hands is merely the medium for having a laugh with a stranger - or friend - and being inspired to try some new ways of working and adding a new string to your bow.

I really enjoyed the class. Kia is very friendly and open, it's easy to have a conversation with her. I was the only one in the class, so I basically had a private session. She explained very well, answered all my questions and I learned a lot. Kirigami is certainly an art that requires someone to explain/show it to you - just following a youtube tutorial or reading up on it, won't do the job. I therefore highly recommend the class if you want to learn something new. I already bought a scalpel and a cutting mat (all very cheap) and will dive right into it and make cards for my friends

I was impressed by Kia's calm & professional approach. I left knowing more than just how to create one card; explanations were clearly delivered on how to make other design basics. Paper choice was great and, despite choosing the most tricky design, I felt I left with the confidence to try anything.
