What's an 'atelier?'

Design Kompany is hosting popup zinemaking ateliers. Before fancy academic schools for art and design came along, there were ateliers. An atelier is 'a workshop or studio used by an artist or designer.' These are places where you can meet new and different *others* to connection remarkable ways. Here are pictures of what we've hosted, so far.

Chiang Mai zinemaking atelier, 2014

ATELIERS, APPRENTICESHIPS & ARTMAKING. Encouraging hands-on learning by doing, the hosts attended to the inner strengths of each participant. Apprentices came. Artworks were made and sold. We imagine artmaking was less commodity-focused (watch the film Posthumous, for a great comment on this) 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?
