We welcome you to the City Art Centre to our drop-in family sessions to celebrate the Festival of Architecture.


You will get the chance to build models of fantastic buildings using a variety of exciting materials and textures. Come along and work with artists and architects to build a new fantasy city in the gallery - representing a new vision of the city of Edinburgh. We encourage your design to be as off-the-wall as possible, and the emphasis is on creativity. 

You will also get the opportunity to create a diorama of our present day city of Edinburgh to celebrate the heritage of existing buildings.

Suitable for all ages.

Drop in session - no booking required.
