The Workshop will have a new take on traditional studio teaching in the era of online teaching. Taking forward from the original Bauhaus foundation courses, this workshop will act both as an initiator of foundational coursework for students as wella crash course on bauhaus ideology, its pioneers and its pedagogy. This workshop has two levels; basic and advanced, the latter being the extension of theories briefly covered in the former module. Each level is 2 weeks long and the expected outcome is to inhibit the ideologies and lessons which Bauhaus foundation studios meant to impart in its students.
