Create / Workshops

The Lighthouse has regular weekend workshops for children, on a host of themes relating to design, making and the environment. We programme Master-classes that tie in with the current exhibitions and exhibiting artists and designers.  Please check the website regularly to see what's on, or sign up for our newsletter.

MAKLab offers a range of structured workshop experiences and ranging from young pupils & school groups through to creative thinking events for SME's.

Companies, Local Authorities, Charities & Social Enterprises looking to stimulate creativity and spark innovative thinking in staff can go beyond the workplace boundaries and use MAKLab exclusively or alongside other users in an inspiring atmosphere which fosters teamwork, lateral thinking, problem solving and confidence building.

We also offer a design workshop experience for tenants / end users to engage with the design process ranging from master-planning your village to brainstorming innovative independent living aids.

Workshops are facilitated by qualified and experienced designers, architects and educators.
