Museum of Architecture brings magic of Gingerbread City to Manchester!

Museum of Architecture, the team behind The Gingerbread City, is hosting some gingerbread-building fun in the city this holiday season.

Families are invited to take part in one of three gingerbread skyline-building workshops on Saturday, 16th November at Manchester School of Architecture.

Visitors are invited to come and hear from local architecture practices about designing Manchester’s evolving high-rise skyline, then have a go at creating their own unique skyscraper building using a kit of gingerbread parts.

Don’t miss out - book here today!

The workshops are suitable for children aged 5 and over. Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult, and there must be one adult for every two children attending.

Workshop times are as follows:
10:30am-12pm Family session
1pm-2:30pm Family session hosted by Hawkins\Brown
3:30pm-5pm Family session

The price is just £20 per kit, with the cost covering the cost of making one gingerbread skyline for one child and an accompanying adult. All materials are supplied.

Advance booking required! To book click here.

The Gingerbread City is an annual exhibition where architects, designers and engineers create a futuristic city made entirely of gingerbread (and lots of sweets!). This years exhibition opens on December 7th at Somerset House, London.

Brought to you by Playground Design Studio, together with Manchester School of Architecture and sponsored by Hawkins\Brown, these workshops are a part of Design Manchester 2019.

Speaking about the workshops, Melissa Woolford, founder and director of Museum of Architecture said: “We are really excited about bringing our gingerbread house-making workshops to Manchester and working with local architecture practices.

This is just the first step in bringing some gingerbread magic to Manchester. I really hope we will be able to create a Gingerbread City Manchester in 2020 so watch this space! Each workshop begins with a short introduction about the history of skyscrapers, the importance of high-density buildings and how technology and innovations included in skyscrapers are tackling the climate crisis. Then it’s on to the construction of the gingerbread skyscrapers as well as learning how to draw the plans and elevations of the structure.”

Don't miss out on this fun way to spend time with the family. Get your tickets today.
