This summer, 66 Portland Place was enlivened by a series of children’s workshops…
Whilst teachers and students enjoyed their well-earned summer break, the RIBA have been helping children get to grips with architectural ideas, make new friends and explore the secrets of 66 Portland Place.
Aimed at 7 to 12 year olds, the RIBA’s summer sessions included workshops on model making, pop-ups and eco-design. Talent and enthusiasm were not in short supply! All participants got stuck into investigating architecture and the city, whilst learning new making, drawing and other creative skills along the way.
If you like the look of this summer’s programme for children, keep your eye on the What’s On section of architecture.com to find out about the next holiday workshops coming up in the half term of October 2013 – more details of these will be online soon. Artists and educators will be leading half-day hands-on sessions for your little ones to be inspired by ‘Animal Architecture’ and ‘Model-making from Nature’ during October half term. Like the summer sessions these workshops will use the RIBA’s rich collections of books, periodicals, photographs and drawings to inspire young minds and equip students with useful skills.
To all the participants of this summer’s workshops: we hope you enjoyed the summer holidays and good luck with the new school term!
