Our Hut has carried out projects on a wide variety of architectural themes, working mainly in schools, but also with community groups, families and the general public. Courses with individual classes range from one-day workshops to courses of workshops over two to eight sessions. We also deliver teacher Inset, either as part of a project with the children or a stand-alone day or twilight session.
In schools we have worked with children from Early Years to Key Stage 3 using architectural investigation and creative responses to link with and enhance many areas of the curriculum. The main focus of all projects is creative 2D and 3D work, and classes from Key Stage 2 upwards will design a building to an architectural brief and make a model. Projects cover many different topics, a few of which are described in the examples below.
