Playtime at Saturday School (Dec edition)

14 December 2019 12:00—18:00

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 VAJ Power: FUSE Takeover.


Glasgow Tool Library – Play Time
Get in the festive spirit and design your own toy or gift to construct using only sustainable or reclaimed materials. Whilst building your own 3-D design, engage in discussions around how to enjoy a more sustainable festive period by reducing waste.
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!
