The Colourways Trend Forecast Workshop organised by the Design Institute of Australia (DIA) will be held at Encore St Kilda on 28 July and 29 July.

The DIA will also be launching a new Advanced Material Network project, ‘Materian’ at the Colourways Trend Forecast Workshop.

Designers, manufacturers and major research institutions will come together to share knowledge about advanced material innovations and explore potential applications in the built environment, recreational vehicle and marine sectors. Network sessions at the workshop will also allow attendees to participate in the development of a material library.

Key highlights of the Colourways Trend Forecast Workshop include Trend Forecasting; Materian's advanced material network project; and a Biomimicry presentation by Jay Harman.

Participants in the Colourways Trend Forecast Workshop also have a chance to win some amazing giveaways.
