Open workshop at the
Bauhaus Museum Dessau

11 Feb + 11 Mar + 8 Apr, 11 am – 2 pm 
Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Foyer
Admission free >> Registration required

Age 14 – 114

For the Bauhäuslers, experimentation with techniques and materials was a basic prerequisite for creation. We would like to take up this idea: We will try out various analog and digital media, work in teams and individually on larger and smaller creative projects, and tinker, build, design, and program for all it's worth.
Participants will be accompanied by artists, designers and art educators.

Meeting place:
Bauhaus Museum Dessau
Mies-van-der-Rohe-Platz 1, 06844 Dessau-Roßlau, Germany


Folding, binding and designing
Sat, 11 Feb 2023

This workshop teaches simple, practical and original bookbinding basics. The focus is on techniques that can later be developed further by oneself without glue and with few tools. The aim is to understand how a hand-bound book is made in order to be able to apply this knowledge creatively. We will start with an overview of materials, tools and vocabulary. Then we fold, bind and design.

Workshop leader: Anne Deuter graphic designer and book artist / Leipzig


The flat from the assembly line for individualists
Sat, 11 Mar 2023

In the context of an architecture workshop, we will compare the ideas and floor plans of the house "Scheibe Nord" in the immediate vicinity of the Bauhaus Museum Dessau with the arcade houses by Hannes Meyer in the south of Dessau. Finding standardised – and thus cost-effective – solutions for housing was one of the central themes at the Bauhaus. Rents, designed furniture and interiors were to be affordable. The workshop will focus on the question: What are the needs of housing planning in 2023? As diverse as our society is today, so different can flats be designed. We want to investigate this on a self-built model on a scale of 1:20. As a result, we will show a variety of individual flats for different living scenarios in a constant structure.

Workshop leader: Heiko Gerdes Architect / Berlin
