It has been a great experience. I don't sew or work with fabrics so it has been a real step out of my comfort zone! In spite of my lack of experience, I have made some hats that I'm actually proud of! The classroom in the Costume department is a bonus - it's fascinating to see the work of the students.

Plymouth College of Art 5-week and 10-week short courses run in September, January and April. See our full list of courses.

The course greatly exceeded my expectations. The tutor succeeds in encouraging individual style as well as general disciplines and is someone who is a working practitioner, as well as, having a comprehensive knowledge of the history of the craft. The venue is light and spacious, clearly a well-used space which enhances and encourages work.
