The workshops of the three Bauhaus institutions are open again and invite visitors to experiment.
bauhaus_lab in Berlin
Every Saturday the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin invites visitors of all ages to participate in their bauhaus_labs at the temporary bauhaus-archiv. Inspired by works from their collection and authentic exercises from the historic Bauhaus, the group approaches design challenges using analogue and digital methods. In these workshops, a team of museum educators introduce you to photography and drawing, materials and patterns, arts and crafts techniques, colours and multi-sensory perception.
No prior knowledge is required. Participation is free; prior registration is required.
For upcoming dates and registration details, please consult the event calendar of the Bauhaus-Archiv Berlin.
Laboratory at the Bauhaus Museum Weimar
The Laboratory at the Bauhaus Museum Weimar is both a design lab and “creativity station” in one. By means of various experiments, you can discover how design processes impact our daily lives. We begin with questions formerly posed by the historical Bauhaus: How do we want to live together? How do we wish to present ourselves and what should our future look like? You will find a wide variety of materials and modern techniques for your experiments – from paper cutters to 3-D scanners to augmented reality.
The open workshop takes place every Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 1 pm. Our workshop motto is “Do it yourself!” The focus is on experimentation with new materials and techniques. Participation is free, no registration necessary!

Open workshop in the Bauhaus Building in Dessau
Whether with or without prior knowledge: The programme of the Open Workshop at the Bauhaus Building is aimed at children and young people aged 8 to 14. Every Wednesday from 4–6 pm (school vacations and public holidays excluded), the Bauhäuslers interest in experimentation becomes a model for the work in the workshop. For the Bauhäuslers, experimentation with techniques and materials was a basic prerequisite for creation. The workshop team would like to take up this idea and print our own typefaces, develop letters and collages, build masks and shoot stop-motion animations. There are no limits to the imagination!
Admission is free, a registration required.
