Can’t commit to a 10 week class? Want to do something different with a friend? Need to do something with your hands? Love making things? Want to try something new? Then this is the place for you!

We offer a wide selection of shorter courses where you can learn new techniques, explore different media or enjoy experimenting with skills you have already dabbled in. See the variety of what we offer at the bottom of this page.

Ranging from half a day to five days these one-off courses are great to do with a friend, meet new people, to give as a gift or treat yourself.
