Saturday School – November ’19 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 Civic Haus x Dain Hings.


Glasgow Tool Library – Form Follows Function
In this workshop participants will design and build their own table to take home with them. We will begin by taking inspiration from a range of conventional modernist designs and then review the materials available to assess the best construction methods.
This workshop is kindly supported by the Climate Challenge Fund.
13:00 – 18:30

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

Dress for the Weather – Model Making
The theme of ‘material reuse in architecture’ will be explored by working in scale models to create stylistic and spatial forms as well as material samples. The end result will be an experimental, communal architectural model that tests ideas of how to make a new architecture with reclaimed and up-cycled materials.
14:00 – 18:00

Dain Hings – Workshops by Dain Hings
Dain Hings invite you to “dae some hings” at the Civic House.
Dain Hings is a Dundee/Glasgow based, artist led collective that offer a wide range of activities and workshops. Throughout the course of the afternoon paticipants will work collaboratively on activities such as drawing with sticks and the ultimate paper chain race to collectively transform the work space with their output.
15:00 – 18:00
