Furnishing the Landscape

Maeda Workshop in Hooke Park

Monday 1 – Saturday 6 July 2019

This workshop will bring together a cross section of students, tutors and family members of the AA.

The well-appreciated Pizza Oven built from a succession of previous workshops is now needs of TLC. The brief this summer is to renew the outdoor kitchen and dining area. Our challenge would be to use materials all to be found from the woodland such as forestry thinning, curved trunks, flint stone, clay and the earth. Not only the building materials. We may also search and gather mushrooms and other edible surplus of Hooke Park for a big feast to celebrate the completion.


1) Due to limited availability, participation is dependent on review of the application form by the Programme Head, please complete the form and send this through to the Visiting School Office: visitingschool@aaschool.ac.uk

2) If you are not yet an AA member, then please subscribe for membership as we can only consider applicants who are AA members.

3) If you are already an AA member, please include your membership ID number when you submit your PDF application form. Please make sure that you are an AA member before the start date of the programme.

The deadline for applications is: 7 June 2019.


The fee for Maeda Visiting School is £380 (including the £60 membership fee) and is only applicable to non-AA students and staff. Fees include food and accommodation in Hooke Park for the duration of the workshop.

If your application is successful, the Visiting School Office will be in touch and provide you with the instructions for payment. The fee is not applicable for AA students and staff.  Students need to bring their own laptops, digital equipment and model making tools.

All participants travelling from abroad are responsible for securing any visa required, and are advised to contact their home embassy early. After payment of fees, the AA School can provide a letter confirming participation in the workshop.

All participants are responsible for securing their own travel and health insurance. Please ensure that your travel insurance also covers your personal belongings i.e. laptop, equipment, tools, passport etc. The AA takes no responsibility for lost/ stolen property.

For students from the European Union
If you are a student from another country in the European Union, here for less than six months, you will require a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC, previously called E111) which must be obtained from your home country. The card is not an alternative to travel insurance. It will not cover any private medical healthcare or costs, such as mountain rescue in ski resorts, being flown back to your home country, or lost or stolen property. Therefore it is important to have both an EHIC and a valid private travel insurance policy. Some insurers now insist that you hold an EHIC, and many will waive the excess if you have one.

For students from non-European Union countries, ie international students
If you are here for less than six months, please note you are not covered for National Health Service treatment in the UK.  You are therefore required to obtain travel/health insurance from your own country.
