Schools Workshops

Mackintosh Queen’s Cross is one of Glasgow's hidden architectural gems and is the only church building in the world designed by the great Scottish architect designer and artist, Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

It is now the international headquarters of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh Society. We believe that education, skills and learning are the key to success and living a prosperous and fulfilled life. Using Mackintosh’s iconic building is a major asset in delivering lively learning resources and workshops for schools.

We have developed an exciting new workshop programme for 2017.

This will involve using the wonderful environment of Mackintosh Queen’s Cross and the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh to inspire young people to develop creative ideas which they will explore and develop through print workshops.

The format of the workshops will be adjusted to the skill level of the class.

Workshops cost £75.00 for up to 33 pupils.
