Design is a scientific process that incorporates several different disciplines and responds to the requirements of the natural environment with aesthetics and creativity. Short term “design studies” such as studio workshops, symposiums, workshops, student meetings, etc., where all disciplines including those based on design and creativity come together and various works are presented, are an important part of the education process. These include seminars, exhibitions, workshops and similar events that are held throughout the world, which are effective organizations in the design education process. In the present paper, the “History Narrated with Urban Furniture, Konya / Sille” workshop that was organized within the context of BAP 01 project no. SBA-2016-5350 at Karadeniz Technical University in 2016-2017 academic year was discussed. The study was based on the data collected during the workshop activities conducted with 20 students. The study aimed to measure of the use of technology by the achievements of students in informal design education studies that become prevalent in Turkey and worldwide and their interaction with formal education based on the collected data. The survey results were based on the percentages (%) with respect to total values. Finally, recommendations for future design training events were made based on the survey data.
