SCHOOLS & PUBLIC PROGRAMME
Learning at the museum
The Design Museum is a centre for design education in the twenty first century, harnessing the potential of design to tackle the challenges of today’s complex world from local to global.
We offer a portfolio of experiential learning programmes predicated on relevance, problem-solving and applied creativity inviting learners to think and act like a designer.
A range of formats is offered from one-hour workshops to three-day courses in the Swarovski Foundation Centre for Learning.
Drawing inspiration from the museum’s exhibitions and displays, our workshops and courses are facilitated by a team of design educators and creative professionals for learners of all backgrounds, ages and interests.
Spark your students' creativity with the potential of design to improve lives. Explore our exhibitions as a self-directed group, discover our workshops for schools or get involved in our annual competition for schools, Design Ventura.
Our Design Camps are fun and engaging creative workshops suitable for children aged 8 – 11 and young people aged 11 – 14.
A vibrant programme to create pathways into design for 14 – 16 year olds to experiment and imagine a better future together. Applications are open for the 2023 programme – we're looking for young people and design leads.
