Sandra Fruebing

Sandra is a social designer whose work is informed by cultural observation and carried out through direct collaborations with the general public. Her process makes use of community engagement through educational and performative workshops where she focuses on relinquishing sole authorship of the produced work. Her current research focuses on storytelling as a means to develop community led design practices. Her recent collaboration with the Ababda craftswomen in Southern Egypt combined sustainable leather crafts with environmental storytelling. Sandra is a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and holds an MA in Design Products from the Royal College of Art.
