Appetite for Design: Schools Programme

Enjoy a Schools Guided Visit & Activity for FREE

Have you ever wondered who designed your favorite biscuit? Not what it tastes like but what it looks like!

The Appetite for Design guided visit and activity will take a multi-sensory approach to food design. The National Craft Gallery Education team will engage students in activities involving sight, touch, smell, sound and taste to encourage students to consciously experience food. Students will respond through conversation, brainstorming, drawing, making and reflection. Marije Vogelzang ‘’eating designer’’ featured in the Appetite for Design exhibition has identified eight areas to explore food design. Students will explore the Appetite for Design exhibition under the following headings - senses, nature, culture, society, technique, psychology, science and actions.

We invite class groups to join us at National Craft Gallery, Kilkenny this May and June for this unique educational experience. Take an inspiring tour of our Appetite for Design exhibition, see unusual dinners and unique food designs from home and around the world, this event is not to be missed. The tour is supported by a guided design activity that students can continue back in the classroom.

This activity supports the SESE and Visual Arts Primary School Curriculum.
