Saturday School – January ’20 Edition

Saturday School is a day of creative workshops.

Every month, we will fill the spaces of Civic House with workshops led by practitioners working across art, design and sustainability. Our aim is to create a stimulating environment for testing new ideas, learning through making and sharing skills and knowledge.

Spend the day developing a new skill, exploring a practice or learning about new topics and subjects.

Then from 7pm, share a meal with everyone who’s taken part in the workshops, served by the Civic House Kitchen team.

From 8pm onwards, Civic House will host After School Club with Shoot Your Shot – BONZAI BONNER and MI$$ CO$MIX will be providing the soundtrack to warm up yer January evening PLUS a live set fae DONNA SAVOY JR. ♥


Glasgow Tool Library – Form Follows Function
