Architecture and Design Club

Saturday 15 Feb, 29 Feb, 14 March and 28 March 2020

Years 9-11

Students in years 9, 10 and 11 are invited to join the University of Brighton’s School of Architecture and Design to take part in exciting Architecture and Product Design workshops.

Working with academics and current students from the University, students will gain hands on experience and develop skills in visualising, making and drawing.

This is a brilliant opportunity for those who currently enjoy subjects such as Art, Design, Craft and Technology, but is also suitable for anyone who would like to take part in an activity outside of their current studies in a subject that they may not have considered before and see if they could be interested in studying this in the future.

Design and Craft Club

Saturday 29 Feb, 7 March, 14 March and 21 March 2020

Years 9-11

You are invited to join the University of Brighton’s School of Art over four Saturdays, for an exciting experience of designing and making in our wood, metals, ceramics and polymers workshops.

Centred around the theme 'from Taste to Waste' and working with lecturers and current University of Brighton students, we will be developing ideas and creating a variety of objects that explore possible new solutions to how we eat and how we can deal with the stuff that we throw away afterwards. This is a great opportunity for students who love to make things and who would like to know more about how creative people can help make society a better place.
