Open workshop at the
Bauhaus Museum Dessau

11 Feb + 11 Mar + 8 Apr, 11 am – 2 pm 
Bauhaus Museum Dessau, Foyer
Free admission >> registration required

Age 14 – 114

For the Bauhäuslers, experimenting with techniques and material was a basic prerequisite for creativity. We want to pick up on this idea: we try out various analogue and digital media, work in a team, and individually tinker with, construct, design and programme major and minor creative projects, the whole gamut.

Participants will be supported by artists, designers and art teachers.

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 inventive bookbinding basics. The focus is on techniques you can continue developing yourself later, without glue and using just a few tools. The aim is to understand how a hand-bound book is made so as to be able to apply this knowledge creatively yourself. We start off with an overview of material, tools and vocabulary. Afterwards we get to work on folding, binding and designing.

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


Assembly-Line Home for Individualists
Sat, 11 Mar 2023

Within the scope of an architecture workshop we shall compare the ideas and ground plans of the building “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-efficient solutions for housing was one of the core themes at the Bauhaus. The intention was to make rents, designed furniture and interiors affordable. The workshop focuses on the question: what are the specific requirements facing residential planning in 2023? As diverse as our society is today, we can design our homes with just as much variety. We want to investigate this using a self-made model on a scale of 1:20. We show the result in various individual flats planned for different living scenarios, all within a structure that stays the same.

Workshop leader: Heiko Gerdes Architect / Berlin


Photo Lab – Analogue Negative Enlargement
// Bauhaus Building
Sat, 8 Apr 2023

This Saturday workshop deals with the basics of analogue photography. We invite all photography fans to the historic Bauhaus Building – whether professionals, semi-professionals or anyone who dreams of becoming one. Here in the photo lab a three-hour-long workshop will demonstrate the basics about negative enlargement. We shall show you how to enlarge analogue negatives yourself and what you need in order to do this. Participants are welcome to bring their own negative strips to the workshop!

Workshop leader: Leo Speelmans Mediator / Cologne
