Get creative from home

Taught by the College’s expert tutors, self-paced courses will help you to start oil painting, printmaking, drawing and more from home at your own pace. Each course includes a series of instructional videos with step-by-step guidance to create a unique artwork, make your own books and more. There’s also the option of a craft box filled with materials posted directly to you.

As well as self-paced courses, look out for a limited number of new live online courses delivered over Zoom in April, in subjects including textiles, gardening and creative writing.

Be inspired in the College’s beautiful surroundings

Escape and recharge while learning a new skill or perfecting your practice. This summer, courses encourage you to embrace your surroundings and create beautiful objects for your home, or offer ways to recycle and reuse items.
