16 Feb

Saturday School is a monthly forum for creative learning. Each edition will occupy the spaces of Civic House and host workshops and discussions led by practitioners working across mixed disciplines.

Our aim is to create a stimulating environment for testing new ideas, learning through making and sharing skills and knowledge. By creating a monthly programme we hope to create the framework – space, peer-support, and connections with audiences – for practitioners who have an interest in teaching and learning to deliver activity and collectively develop their practice.

At each edition, Civic House will be open for a full day with workshops taking place between 11am – 6pm. Start times will depend on the activity but we encourage all workshops to finish at 6pm, when a communal meal will be served that will be available for all workshop participants and open to the public. From 20:00 onwards, Civic House will host AFTER SCHOOL CLUB, an evening of performances and live music with HEALTHY and friends.

Workshops will include (but not limited to) cooking, risograph poster printing, repair cafes, fabrication skills, health & well-being, book groups, animation & visuals, building for kids, discussion groups, talks and city tours & walks.

Civic House Kitchen – Food Workshop 

The workshop will give an introduction to simple vegan recipes made fancy with nuts, seeds, herbs and spices. Learn how to make big, colourful sharing dishes that are full of flavour but not too difficult or expensive to make – take home some food, a few recipes and some knowledge on vegan cooking!
This workshop is kindly supported by the Climate Challenge Fund.
13:00 – 15:00
Tickets here. 

Dress for the Weather– A Glasgow Subway Derive

The spin of a wheel will decide the route for this tour of the city’s subway. Each stop will then follow the idea of a Situationist Derive and the walks recorded through various media. A workshop at Civic House will use the recordings to construct a montage of video, drawing, print and sound.
13:00 – 18:30
Tickets here.

RISOTTO – Advanced Poster Club 

In this risograph printing workshop, you will collaborate to create 8 different artworks that will then be exposed on the drums. You will then have the opportunity to print and overlay the different artworks they have created and leave with a bunch of colourful riso prints.
