Someone has rightly quoted -‘One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!’ this was proved right once again at the creative session held by WLCI Mumbai. The Design School’s ‘out of the box’, thinking method encouraged students to seek out new avenues to design.
WLCI had an innovative orientation programme for its new students’ wherein the WLCI School of Design took the waste materials like newspapers, old magazines and discarded materials and turned them around to give shape to original ideas.
The students charged with new ideas created the best they could out of the waste. The session was infused with leadership qualities, teamwork, and individual opinion. The students completed the task as a group activity. At WLCI, this activity reflected various qualities of individuals and how they all come together to build a strong structure.
Individual weaknesses were overcome as creative thinking and strategy building skills were sharpened, strengths and abilities were put to good use, cooperation and adjustments were built up on. No matter what methods and materials used, everything led them to one goal. To create a one-of-design which was new and out of the ordinary at the same time!
This is what we at WLCI call as ‘The Bridge of Friendship’!
