How will I be taught?
Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. You will be encouraged to look at the work of other crafts people and artists, both contemporary and historical and keep a sketchbook/ notebook to record goals/ ideas, processes and progress and self assessment against the learning aims on your Individualised Learning Plan, ILP.
Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising crafts people.
What do I need to bring with me?
You will need to bring your own choice of project to the first class. At this first session the tutor will discuss any special tools and materials needed and the workshop is well equipped with tools for you use at the class .There are some materials such as French polish, wire wool etc available to buy on the course as needed at reasonable costs. There is also storage available for one small piece of furniture per student [maximum] at the centre, these are left at your own risk.
