Educational Workshops

For the last 5 years, we have organised architecture workshops for Rye Bay Beach School, for children aged 5-13 years, based at Rye Harbour Sailing Club. The workshops are designed to encourage building and making. The unique shingle ridges of Rye Harbour Nature Reserve and the expansive sandy beach of Camber Sands provide great locations for building temporary structures or giant sandcastles.  In previous years, we have made a scale replica of Camber Castle (1:20), shelters from vintage yacht sails, built a Camera Obscura large enough for 12 people, a ticket kiosk for a circus show, wooden bird houses, waterside house models, spaghetti bridges and developed our own photos in a makeshift darkroom.
