Art summer school

I teach part time at the University of Wolverhampton, where they are doing a summer school of taster courses in the arts. I wish I could do more short courses, they are such an instant insight into new skills, materials and ways of creating. Anyway, Wolves Art School is opening their doors for two weeks "to host a programme of bespoke courses and workshops in a wide range of subjects.

By taking part in one of the numerous courses available, you will have access to our excellent facilities and workshops, which are considered to be amongst the finest in the UK. You will be taught by industry professionals and international practitioners, who will help you to discover how exciting and rewarding working in the creative arts can be."

I would love to do the creative silk screen printing for textiles, because in my head I would make beautiful new curtains and bed linen, although in practice this may not happen... If you are in the Midlands and fancy a go at computer games design/Raku firing/stone setting and the other options they have then look here.
