About our Workshops

Kidesign’s creative workshops cover subjects such as design, architecture, 3D printing, model making, etc. At the essence, each and every one of our workshops aims to inspire the next generation of problem solvers and equip them with creativity and imagination. We have been running activities for children since 2010 and have worked with thousands of children in schools, ran activities in almost all major UK museums and exhibited at different international design and technology events.
