About the workshop series

Our workshops for ages 15 to 18 ‘skill up’ teenagers who are thinking about studying architecture or design. Participants think critically, share their views on architecture and express themselves through creative practice. In past workshops, participants have learnt how to work to an architectural brief, improve portfolios, develop their architectural photography and drawing skills using a variety of media (including digital drawing on iPads) and work individually and collaboratively to think about how to design sustainable and responsible architecture.

The workshop will take place online on Microsoft Teams. A link will be sent to participants with confirmed bookings.

These workshops are led by professional educators and supervised by RIBA staff. Please see the materials list for items that will be required during the workshop.

If you're under 18, tickets must be booked by a parent or guardian. Online booking in advance is essential and if we do not receive full registration information in advance of the event we cannot allow the participant to attend.

Workshop costs (introductory rate)

  • £20 excluding booking fee
  • £15 for participants who qualify for free school lunch (proof required)
