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."
Ms Baxter, Deputy Head, Kings Cross Academy

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

Yr 5 Teacher, Redcliffe Primary School

“Archimake is proving really popular! We have had a very old response. 10 children have been selected and we do have a waiting list in case anyone drops out.”

Michele Gordon, Kings Cross Academy

Mr C Aguilar, dad

“Thank you..[my son] has sat down and gone through week by week with his dad. He is so proud of his work. Thank you!”

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

Enjoyable workshop at Bromley inspired by Bauhaus chairs. Marcel Breuer Cesca chair was most popular to make. The various sizes were great to highlight the importance of using a ruler. We think Goldilocks would have had a great time choosing her preference out of this chair selection!

Our Tate Modern visit began with a relaxing play in the gardens at the foot of the building. The looming chimney of the former power station behind us reminded the group of the exciting creative experience that would be next on the agenda.

As the space in the gardens became less available, Archimakers entertained themselves with Exploding Kittens card game instead of football activity.

We visited the Switch House first and after modelling this we took stations at the electronic drawing screens to explode our sketches on enormous screens in the Tate - exactly where they deserved to be displayed!
