New creative workshops for 2020

We've closed the door on our last workshop of 2019. But don't worry! We've been working hard behind the scenes to plan our workshops for 2020 and we're still taking workshop bookings, answering your questions and sending out gift vouchers in time for Christmas!

We're excited to be starting 2020 with some brand new workshops for you.

We welcome new tutors to the team including Eugenia Rosa and Lauren Smith.

We also have some advanced courses in sketching, screenprinting and macramé, building on the beginners courses from previous years.

And, for the first time, we have invited an international guest tutor to visit. Polish jewellery artist Anna Mazon will be visiting in September to teach three silver clay workshops.
