From Looking to Seeing

We offer learning opportunities that fire imaginations, raise aspiration and develop abilities.

Our constantly evolving programme focuses on three key areas:

Art, Craft and Design
Developing the key elements of line, colour, form and materials we deliver practical workshops to push the participants' understanding skills and experience.


From spoken word to creative writing. Using drama, objects and visual inspiration we provide a springboard into writing. Workshops look at character development, scene setting and exploring narratives and dialogue.

Historical Enquiry
Through the imaginative exploration of primary and secondary sources we examine the lives of people at different times to develop empathy with them and an understanding of the context they lived in.
