This is actually an FE College in Arts and Crafts - with a Craft Centre and small exhibition space. Watched a glassblower tutor a student - fascinating! Several small craft studios selling wares. Small cafe on site - staff very helpful.

Whilst the retail outlets are fair, but very pricey, the cafe has deteriorated over the past 12 months or so. They used to have decent cakes etc but now they are awful. If you live locally it is quite pleasant to walk along the canal...More

Hi Rose I've not been on a course so can't answer, I'm afraid. I'd suggest giving them a call.However, they do have a Christmas Craft & Vintage Fayre on November 25th & 26th which would be worth visit. Cheers Annie
