We have a range of workshops that focus on art, design and architecture as well as the history of John Soane and the house he built for his family, Pitzhanger Manor. We can deliver workshops on site, online and as outreach to your school.
Architect’s Apprentice: KS1

Meet Sir John Soane, the architect who designed and built Pitzhanger Manor and build your own dream home. Using story-telling, role play and hands-on activities children will explore materials, forces and shapes, compare old and new buildings and use their imagination to make a brand new home.
Architect’s Apprentice: KS2

Students become architects, designers and engineers as they work to a brief designing a structure that is both visually interesting and functional. Students will explore the role of a modern-day architect and work collaboratively with a range of professionals. They will research and critique structures, consider suitable materials and the context in which it is being built.
Art as Inspiration: KS2

What is inspiration and how can art inspire us? Led by an artist facilitator, pupils will explore the work of famous contemporary artists to gain inspiration for their own unique art works.

We have a range of outdoor workshops that take place within Walpole Park and are led by an expert outdoor learning educator.
