Think You've Got  What  It Takes To Work For The Best Workshop Provider In The Country?  Then Get In Touch Today

Architecture Workshops are hands-on fun educational activities for all Key Stages and abilities. Designed to enhance the national curriculum and to communicate the art and experience of architecture, art, and design. The workshops help resource the school curriculum by providing pupils with insight into why and how things are the way they are.

 

In the workshop, the quest for understanding the world around us is a shared experience between workshop presenter 'animateur' and the pupils. Visualising, designing, creating, calculating and analysing are presented through practical activities. Pupils enjoy and learn about the real world through 'learning by doing', self teaching and communicating to others.

Kre8 Workshops

Workshops focusing on investigation, disassembly and evaluation as design and make assignments.

Using design technology, maths and science these workshops are designed to stimulate student’s imaginations

Art & Sculpture

Max 35 students (120 mins)

In groups students examine and discuss detailed examples of modernist abstract painting, specifically the analysis of the paintings composition, structure and narrative. Students explore sculpture making through movement, balance, and composition to create three dimensional structural interpretations of one of the abstract paintings. They consider and discuss their finished sculptures, learning to evaluate their work and the perception of others.



Bridges, Maths & Design

Max 25 / 35 students (90 / 120 mins.)

Our most popular workshop for Key Stage 3 & 4.

The importance of triangulation is explored through the behaviour of beam, cantilever, suspension and bascule bridge types, as well as being pivotal in the design of many other structures using simple framework technology

Mathematical Sculptures / Structures

Max 25 / 35 students (90 / 120 mins.)

Ancient Weapons Of War: Trebuchet

Developed to encourage pupils to pursue their own creativity and imagination. Pupils design and build large structures to a theme. The workshops conclude with self evaluation of the structures.

 

Sense Of Place:

Pupils interpret their local environment, either town or school. Best combined as part of a local investigation or design project.


Abstraction:

Pupils build to a pre-determined theme. Combine with own project for the wow factor e.g. Dinosaurs; Figures; Sea Life; Space; Transport;

Mathematical Shelters

Max 25 / 35 students (90 / 120 mins.)

Students explore the notion of shelter and our requirements for the habitats we live in through the design and construction of a temporary shelter, in one of 3 extreme environments. They are made aware of environmental requirements regarding sustainable development and personal space, as the shelters must be large enough for their team to theoretically sleep in.

Mathematical Skyscrapers

Max 25 / 35 students (90 / 120 mins.)

Students attempt to design and build the tallest and most interesting skyscraper structure they can achieve without it collapsing. Huge fun with a serious message; the tallest is not always the best and uniqueness is everything! Combine both to achieve success. A tall open space is essential and can be built outside, weather permitting.

Olympic Sculptures

Max 25 / 35 students (90 / 120 mins.)

Students are asked to design and build simple stylised sculptures which represent Olympic events as 3D iconography for the 2012 Olympic games. Working quickly to stylise the image of a participating athlete, in an affective pose. An understanding of the nature of abstract art is desirable.
