In spring the Club members are given an incredible opportunity – to attend a Masterclass with one of the UK's foremost engineers, writers, artists and designers, sometimes in their own studio or workspace.

It is a chance for Britain’s next generation to meet and work with some of the best artists and designers practising today and to gain first-hand advice and new role models.

Take a look at the films of some of our Masterclasses.

We believe that direct contact between young people and professionals is key to gaining insights into what working in the creative field really means and what routes might be taken to get there. It also introduces young people to the approaches that professional practitioners take to their work, something that few of them will have experienced in school.

To date, over 100 artists, designers and architects have given their time to lead a Saturday Club Masterclass.

It was an absolute pleasure to give the Masterclass. The programme succeeds in providing real examples of routes into industry, and hopefully inspires people when they are taking their options and looking for HE courses.”

The Masterclass at Turner Duckworth was a huge success. Bruce’s talk was pitched perfectly towards design as a career choice and, since the visit, at least nine Club members are considering a career in graphic design!”

I really enjoyed the Masterclass at Arup, but more importantly so did the young people I talked to. I don’t imagine many of them would have thought about careers in engineering before, but they certainly would afterwards. They were clearly enthused by working with
high-quality resources and expert professionals in a grown-up workplace.”
