Architecture Build Workshop
Join Urban Learners for free family-friendly sessions based on the Sculpture in the City 12th Edition artworks. Drop in and help build our ‘City in a Sculpture’. Kids can put their creativity to the test by making colourful 3D artwork of their City, the sculptures and themselves, and then add to the collaborative, and evolving ‘City in a Sculpture’, which they can also join in building after taking instant photos of their artwork.
About Urban Learners:
The team includes young architects and creatives often from ‘non-traditional’ backgrounds, working together in a collective and collaborative environment to deliver Urban Learners’ mission through creative experiences.
The team is led by Venetia Wolfenden who founded Urban Learners and consists of creative teams, students, and volunteers. Venetia has worked in the architecture sector for over 20 years, as both a qualified architect and education facilitator. After working as an architect for 12 years, Venetia decided to make a career shift and help young people explore and understand their built environment and studied MA Design Education at Goldsmiths College. Following this she was Open City’s education manager for 5 years where her work included the Accelerate into University and Architecture in Schools programmes. She has continued designing and managing design projects through voluntary work with local schools. These projects have included participatory design workshops, and a primary school playground project formed the basis of her MA independent research thesis.
