How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students with some experience, to further learn and practise the skills of a specific craft. Students will also be encouraged to develop a dialogue with the contemporary and historical context of the craft, and will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook/notebook to record ideas, processes and progress. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors, most of whom are practising craftspeople. They will use variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, instruction, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
