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.

A city walk of 2-3 hours will start and finish at Civic House.
