Arts & Crafts Courses

Swarthmore has a wide variety of art and craft opportunities available within the centre. We have fully equipped bespoke workshops for pottery, jewellery and stained glass that enable both beginners and experienced students to develop their creative skills. In addition we have an art studio that offers space for Watercolour, Life Drawing, Printing and Oils courses. We have introduced a range of new courses this year which include Knitting, Felt Making, Home Maintenance, and Floristry Beginners. The Performing Arts has not been forgotten with opportunities in drama currently available.

There are opportunities to learn whether you are a total novice or have extensive experience. Funded courses enable us to offer 10 week courses at very reasonable prices, not only to develop creative skills but also to build confidence and meet new people in a friendly and non judgemental environment.

You are welcome to visit our centre and speak to an adviser about the variety of opportunities available from creative writing to sculpture, pottery to drama, or discuss our accredited courses.
