Explore and Make Online: Creative art workshops for ages 50 and over

The RIBA’s new monthly creative art workshop for those aged 50 or above takes place on the last Thursday of each month. Using architecture and the RIBA's collections as inspiration, you will create your own art in this artist-led workshop. The workshops are free, but booking is essential.

Let’s get creative at home. Book a free place at the RIBA’s monthly art workshop 'Explore and Make: Online' for those aged 50 or above, taking place on the last Thursday of each month. With us online you will explore buildings and architecture while you make your artwork. No experience is required: this is suitable for all abilities.

Artist Wilson Yau will lead each 45-minute session using basic stationery or household items. Inspiration for this interactive workshop will come from themed images from the RIBA’s world class architectural collections of books, drawings, photographs, and archives.

June workshop and booking

For June's workshop, we will be celebrating the London Festival of Architecture and creating experimental drawings with tape and looking at skylines for inspiration.

Book one of two sessions on 24 June: 10.30am to 11.15am and 12pm to 12.45pm.

Please note: these two sessions on the same day are identical so we strongly advise you to only book one.
