About the workshop

Skill Up: Building on Bauhaus

Tuesday 3 August 2021, 10am to 12:30pm
For young people aged 15 to 18

Join us for this online creative architecture workshop for young people aged 15 to 18. Experiment with Bauhaus ideas of bringing art, design and architecture together to develop new ideas for housing that both responds to common needs, and improve personal lives.

This workshop invites you to explore and experiment with ideas from the Bauhaus School to develop your own design for housing fit for the 21st century. We will use collage and found objects as inspiration; experiment with form, function, colour and texture to draw out ideas; and, finally, create a poster that presents your design and arguments for homes built with purpose and philosophy for life in mind.

Materials

  • paper
  • pencil
  • colour pencils, crayons or marker pens (not essential but good to have)
  • collage materials (scrap paper, old newspapers, magazines, letters, envelopes, images, etc.)
  • scissors
  • glue

This online creative architecture workshop is led by educator Marianne Holm Hansen for young people aged 15 to 18 years.

About the workshop series

Our workshops for ages 15 to 18 ‘skill up’ teenagers who are thinking about studying architecture or design. Participants think critically, share their views on architecture and express themselves through creative practice. In past workshops, participants have learned how to work to an architectural brief, improve portfolios, develop architectural drawing skills using a variety of media (including digital drawing on iPads) and photography skills, and work individually and collaboratively to think about how to design sustainable and responsible architecture.

The workshop will take place online via Microsoft Teams. A link will be sent to participants with confirmed bookings. This event is suitable for those aged 15 to 18 years old. These workshops are led by professional educators and supervised by RIBA staff. Please see the materials list for items that will be required during the workshop.

If you're under 18, tickets must be booked by a parent or guardian. Online booking in advance is essential and if we do not receive full registration information in advance of the event we cannot allow the participant to attend.

Workshop costs

  • £20 excluding booking fee
  • £15 for participants who qualify for free school lunch (Proof required)
