Venue: Bow Road Studios, London E3

Dates: This workshop ran for five days from Monday 22nd August 2022 until Friday 26th August 2022.

Workshop Information

Course Outline

Over a packed 5 days, using a variety of materials we will make an array of 3-dimensional static and kinetic structures. Including spherical models and a full-size bamboo tetrahedron and geodesic dome.

We will build the Platonic polyhedral and learn how to draw the solids geometrically. We will examine the key family of natural proportions, including the Golden Section, that underlie Architecture from across the world and explore how surface patterns can be incorporated into 3-dimensional forms.

The class will take part in a large, airy, professional artists studio. Parts of the class will also take place in the adjacent park.


This workshop will be run by highly experienced Creative Dimension Trust tutors Adam Williamson and Stephanie Ellis.



This workshop will run daily from 10am and finish at approximately 4:30pm.
