Creative short courses


Our short course programme offers introductory courses and professional-level training delivered by expert tutors and conveniently held at our city-centre site. They range from ten-week evening classes to intensive Saturday courses throughout the year, as well as summer schools during July and August.

Attending one of our short courses can be a life-changing experience.

We have taught a parole officer who has gone on to be a professional tutu maker, architects and textile designers who have progressed to master’s courses, mums who have become children's book illustrators and marketing managers who have taken the leap into freelance graphic design. We have also welcomed professionals looking to up-skill and enhance their CV, and others who just want to have a go and assess their interest.

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

At the heart of our short courses you will find investigation, risk taking, questioning and careful thought, as well as experimentation with materials and processes.

Our focus is on employing the talents of our teaching staff to develop skills that will open doors into amazing futures.
