This week is full of things to do entertain the next generation, including workshops and summer schools to keep them occupied during the day. If you are of drinking age, make sure not to miss a rare Tate Britain late on Friday, which looks at the history of fashion and self-expression through textiles, and visit London's current exhibitions.
This incredible week-long workshop at the RIBA headquarters will get young children (6-10 year olds) thinking about the fundamental functions of shelters. Children will be looking at how we build to protect from wind, rain, and the sun, before building their very own shelters. The week is run by practicing architects and architectural educators, and is a fantastic opportunity for kids to understand and explore the basics of functional design.
If you thought the wave emoji was just a wave, be sure to visit the Hokusai exhibition before it closes next week. Japan's most famous and arguably most influential artist, Katsushika Hokusai, created fine art pieces up until his death in 1849 at the age of 90. The exhibition focuses on the work produced in his final 30 years.
This Friday, spend your evening at the Tate Britain exploring the history of fashion and our identity through clothing style. Taking inspiration from the Tate's collection of 16th Century Portraits, a series of photographs has been created by stylist Ibrahim Kamara and photographer Kristin-Lee Moolman 'exploring the boundaries of fashion, gender and race'. There will also be talks and drop-in workshops, as well as curated music and pop-up bars.
Join the Royal Academy for this creative workshop, which asks participants to react to the Summer Exhibition, and to create a collaborative artwork. The RA has a long standing reputation for delivering engaging and inspiring workshops throughout the summer holidays, so be sure to book yourself before it's full!
The RIBA aim to turn your perception of Architecture 'Upside Down' in this day absolutely packed full of activities for the whole family. From reimagining yourself as a building to creating narratives of adventure and design, this day at the Portland Place HQ will provide a fun starting point for an interaction with the architectural world.
Feed the creativity of budding graphic designers with this workshop run by artist collective One of My Kind (OOMK), who specialise in in print 'exploring intersections of art, activism and publishing'. OOMK produces a biannual publication, each centering on a different creative theme, with an overall focus on the 'imaginations, creativity and spirituality of women'.
