How will I be taught?

Students will work primarily on their own projects at their own speed with guidance and support. Tutors will use a variety of teaching methods including demonstration, instructions, one-to-one tutorial guidance, group discussions and critiques. It is important to note that craft courses are practical, requiring a degree of manual dexterity. Our courses are taught by qualified and experienced tutors most of whom are practising craftspeople.
Your tutor will encourage and advise on a 1-1 basis you throughout the course

What do I need to bring with me?
