Sublime Structures in Crystal Palace Park Project

The Sublime Structures in Crystal Palace Park Project, devised and run by Our Hut, aimed to enable local young people and families to discover and celebrate the extraordinary legacy of design and engineering innovation found within the park, through school and community workshops as well as a family orienteering pack and this online teaching resource. The project was funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Bromley Council.

Our Hut designed this programme of creative heritage workshops for Key Stages 1, 2 and 3 to help local primary and secondary schools engage with the sublime structures of Crystal Palace Park and delivered them in 2018 at Rockmount Primary School, James Dixon Primary School and Sydenham School.

Peckham Townscape Heritage Initiative

Our Hut has designed a programme of creative heritage workshops to help local primary schools engage with the fascinating and rich architectural history of Peckham.

The Peckham Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) is a Heritage Lottery (HLF) and Southwark Council funded regeneration project from Our Hut.

Following workshops, we created an online resource to enable other schools in the area to carry out a similar project.

The scheme of work is most suitable for Key Stages 1 and 2.
