What teachers are saying..

"I love what you guys are producing in the workshop. It would be great to be able to showcase what the children have learnt during the sessions."

Excellent tutors and workshop. The students were engaged throughout the workshop.”

Mr C Aguilar, dad

Mrs. K. Mark, mum

You offer such creative, inventive, imaginative and inspiring educational workshops that allow our children to grasp and assimilate concepts in an organic manner unimpeded by logical constraints of a conditioned mind. Freedom to create intuitively in turn also creates a new and valued generation who will know no limits and therefore breakdown the hard held boundaries of over intellectualisation; generating a synergy of new and insightful solutions in an ever changing world. Thank you.” 

Ms. Cope-Tylee, mum

Extremely successful outcome for our 9 yr old online Archimaker in Sheffield! Her pavilion is inspired by those introduced in the workshops and one by Francis Kere that she visited on a family holiday. Our Archimaker says;

"It has a domed roof that's made out of loads of different panes of coloured perspex, to reflect the light so that it creates a rainbow effect inside. I took inspiration from the pavilion we made with curved pieces of paper and also something I saw in a sculpture park near us with curly parts. Its got some seating where you'd be able to sit down on it. All around the outside it has little dangly bits of plastic (that would be recycled), that would go all the way around the outside of the dome, (sort of like the fly screen), but like an entrance... and walls, because there wouldn't be walls in it. We have a local park called Encliffe park and it has a really large playing field. It would offer some shade. It offers some seating, and rest... and the rainbow effects inside which are sort of calming. The materials for the pavilion are bits of plastic hanging down, the coloured perspex for the roof. And I would go for silver steel for the things that are holding it up."

Archimakers succeeded to work in groups to make these wonderful models of their designs, showing circulation, materials and excellent understanding of structure. Elevation drawings were also a huge success!

Another excellent online workshop resulting in what we believe to be the best elevation drawing of this building we've seen so far! Esme created this wonderful elevation of the Selgascano Pavilion showing extremely high level of attention to detail. We are extremely pleased with how our online workshops are going and look forward to having more of them to help children gain confidence in themselves and their communication skills in drawing and presenting.
