Creative short courses


Our programme offers introductory and professional-level courses delivered by expert tutors and conveniently held at our central City Campus. It includes evening classes and Saturday courses during the year, as well as summer schools in July and August.

Attending a short course can be a life-changing experience.

We've taught a parole officer who went on to become a professional tutu maker, mums who've become children's book illustrators, and marketing managers who've taken the leap into freelance graphic design.

We've welcomed professionals looking to enhance their CV, architects and textile designers who've progressed on to Masters courses, and enthusiasts who've simply wanted to have a go and try something new.

So why not join them and become part of this creative community?

Our courses will develop your creative thinking skills and introduce you to new ways of working with materials and processes.

Our focus is on using the talents of our teaching staff to help you open doors into amazing futures.
