West Dean College of Arts and Conservation
Make time to make with new summer short courses from West Dean College of Arts and Conservation
Boost both your wellbeing and your creative skills this summer with over 300 new April to September short courses at West Dean College. Including new online courses to help you keep creating while lockdown restrictions ease.
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.
