Ludlow College, Ludlow 21, South Shropshire Furniture Scheme and other partners working together to bring alive social and environmental issues 


THINKWATER, a Ludlow 21 project,  started in June 2009 with A-Level art and design students at Ludlow College briefed to design material for a water value campaign in Ludlow.   


One thing leads to another. The Thinkwater experience has created our Thinkwater process, and a great 2010 project "Funky Furniture - CHAIR" with South Shropshire Furniture Scheme. Thanks to SSFS, this project has won a national award  . The Funky theme and brief carried on into the 2011 project, BEDROOM. The project included "making" workshops for the students, thanks to Skillbuilders, to show some of the key skills for furniture-making. BEDROOM has produced some more superb pieces, many of which feature in the 2012 student summer exhibition.


And the big news - FUNKY III, the 2012 project, is to be launched on June 26th. This year Veolia Environmental Services are supporting the project with funds for two student prizes and auction to be held October 11th 2012 at The Ludlow Brewery sell items from 2010 and 2011. The 2012 project will run until the end of the year.


THINKWATER grew from the NESTA project "Free Radicals" - a multi-university community linked in to Ludlow through Ludlow 21
