Courses for the forseeable future may still subject to changes and limitations on numbers. We continue to add EXTRA courses with popular Tutors, not in the Brochure, arranged when we spot an opportunity. It’s going to be like that for a while.
Latest updates will always be on the website and announced in our eNewsletter Subscribe to our eNewsletter
THE LAZY PHILOSOPHER’S GUIDE TO KAFKA (WEEKEND)

According to Kafka, “It is often safer to be in chains than to be free.” Tracing his life and key works, we will explore some of Kafka’s ideas including the blending of the realistic and the fantastic, how bureaucratic forces limit an individual’s freedom and end by looking at his legacy, which was only made possible by his lifelong friend and literary executor Max Brod. Residential: £242 Non-residential: £172

Those who know us are aware that we are more than a college running interesting courses…
We have just about survived without making any redundancies or defaulting on our mortgage. We are continuing under restrictions, which means we cannot take as many Students on certain courses as we would have liked just yet.
A Donation of any amount (we are a self-supporting charity) will help us to get back on our feet and continue our vocation of lifelong learning in a special setting.

“I have been drawing and painting as long as I can remember and it is within landscape I feel most inspired. Within, as a description of process is important as I’m connected and engaged with landscape physically, through painting practice, personally and passionately. The majesty of landscape cannot be felt, seen, painted or drawnwith strength and presence without being there. These experiences influence the grander studio pieces giving them all, without doubt, greater depth.” R.D.
