How will I be taught?

Craft courses provide an opportunity for students to learn and develop skills, techniques and understand how to design for a chosen craft to a higher level. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other craftspeople and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress. There will be one to one guidance, group critiques and self-assessment against individualised learning outcomes stated on the ILP, Individual Learning Plan.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.

What do I need to bring with me?

Please bring your project to the first class, a dinning room chair or foot stool are ideal first projects, along with a small hammer, scissors, notebook camera or phone camera.
