Workshops for families and children

Workshops for families and children

Inspired by the RIBA Collections and seasonal exhibitions, our programme for families and children provides hands-on creative activities for you to explore contemporary themes around architecture including housing, the environment, migration and placemaking.

Our large-scale family days offer an opportunity for you to learn and work together on a variety of drop-in and timed activities including big builds, digital workshops and collaborative installations. 

During the school holidays, our one-day and multi-day creative workshops allow you to work individually and in teams to develop creative skills through design and construction challenges.


Our workshops

Design Quest workshops are for children aged 6 to 10 and provide a creative environment where we introduce architecture through play and making.

Design Day workshops are for children aged 11 to 15 and take architectural design and creative experimentation a step further.

Our creative workshops run 11am to 4pm, are drop-off and are for all abilities. Workshops are led by artist and architect educators. All materials are included in the ticket price, but you should prepare a packed lunch for your child. Online booking in advance is essential.

We also have courses and workshops for Young People aged 15 to 24.

Design Day: Green Up the City

Join us this May half term for this architecture workshop for children aged 11 to 15. Over 3 days, participants will consider how can we make green spaces work in an urban landscape to build for a better future. Through research, sketch, collage and model making we will investigate new ways to transform the city into an urban jungle that works both for humans and all our wonderful creatures.

Design Quest: Superior Interiors!

Join us during this May half term for this creative architecture workshop for children aged 6 to 10. Participants will explore the different kinds of places that we learn, work, worship, live, relax or play in and begin to think about how each has different interior spaces. We will develop a mood board of our ideas for a specific interior space before creating a model that shows how your room works in practice.
