Winchester School of Art Saturday Club: October 2017 – June 2018

Textile Exhibition at WSA


The Saturday Club offers local 13–16 year olds an insight into a broad range of art and design subjects. The club, a completely free activity for participants, is run over 9 months, totalling 20 Saturdays and including two visits to London. In addition, a Master Class will see an external specialist artist visit the club to present a workshop. The year culminates in a final exhibition in London, where members from Saturday Clubs across the country will meet to share their work and experiences.

Saturday Clubs benefit young people in many ways, including: 

During their 20 Saturdays, students at Winchester School of Art’s club will have the opportunity to partake in workshops, sampling curriculum and facilities across our five BA programmes: Graphic Arts, Fashion & Textile Design, Games Design & Art, Fashion Marketing/Management and Fine Art. Workshops will be held by our own experienced Tutors and Technicians, supported by Student Ambassadors, who are current students at WSA.
