What’s an ‘atelier?’

An atelier is a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer. Design Kompany’s ateliers are hosted by Akira Morita and Dipika Kohli.

ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. DK imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused* and more about the experience. And for those seeking training, it wasn’t about, one might guess, the expensive tuition fees that come with ho-hum professors (jaded people who’ve forgotten the meaning of their occupation—here I recommend Art School Confidential). Perhaps it was about the magic, if I let myself be uncool and optimistic, of Art. What it can do. How it connects us, across time, and distance. Let’s *make* something. Let’s play? View gallery >
