On Saturday 18 November, 1,200 young people from around the UK came together at Central Saint Martins for the annual National Saturday Club London Visit. The Saturday Club gives young people aged 13-16 the opportunity to study subjects they love at their local college, university or museum every Saturday morning for free.
The London Visit marks the first national event of the Club year, and the young people were warmly welcomed to Central Saint Martins, saw an exhibition of their self-portraits and collaborate on building a tracing paper city in a workshop devised and led by Nichol Keene and Luke Watson with CSM Foundation students. From CSM, the clubs all went on specially organised tours of museums and galleries in the capital. For many, this was their first trip to London.
