Informal CPD
Book a virtual meeting with Surface Matter and learn about the materials we love. Whether you're an architect, designer or maker, the free session can help you learn about recycled surface materials made of paper or plastic waste. Understand how they’re made, where they can be used and how they can contribute to achieving sustainable certifications. An informal presentation that will form more of a conversation, our remote learning sessions may be relevant for self-directed CPD points.

Who should attend?
Architects, creatives, interior designers, material researchers, scientists and librarians and makers interested in learning more about our materials
