“Car Design: Art and Engineering” by Carsten Astheimer
Sat June 10 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm BST| £15.00
Design is the process where an idea comes to life, especially in car design; a mix of art and engineering, the result of a multi-disciplinary team often including tens of thousands of people.
Although technology has changed dramatically, the art of creating a beautiful car has hardly changed at all.
This illustrated talk by car designer Carsten Astheimer, who will be bringing one of his concept cars along to marvel at, is not to be missed!
This event will be taking place at the Lifford Hall in Broadway and is kindly sponsored by Kinghams Auctioneers.
Tickets go on sale through the website in March, and 1 week earlier for Benefactors of the festival who qualify for Priority Booking.
You can become a Benefactor for as little as £50 and support our Outreach Projects in doing so, applications are now open.
