How will I be taught?
Students will be encouraged to keep a sketchbook/notebook to record ideas, progress and processes. Please note that craft courses are practical requiring a degree of manual dexterity.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors, most of whom are practising craftspeople. They will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstrations, instruction, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques.
At the start of the course you will work with your tutor to develop an Individual Learning Plan (ILP) to set out what you want to achieve by the end of the course. You will both monitor and assess your progress throughout the course to ensure your learning needs are being met. There are no formal exams or tests to complete on this course.
What do I need to bring with me?
We will supply everything you need for the first lesson. We have a wide range of hand tools available to use and the tutor will be able to advise you if there is anything specific you need to buy or could bring in from home for future classes.
For the second week you will need to buy the wood for your project. During the first lesson the tutor will let you know what you will be making and advise you what to buy.
What can I do next?
