Due to Covid-19, we're sorry to announce that we will not be running any short courses or workshops during the 2020-21 academic year.
Learn a new skill or explore your creativity with our programme of short courses, evening classes and art classes at the Bath School of Art and the Bath School of Design.
Immerse yourself in creativity. Our art classes are a great way to build skills and try new things while you work or study. Held at our art and design campus in central Bath, our short courses are open to the public as well as Bath Spa students and staff.
"The teachers were committed, organised, dynamic, and prepared to meet the students halfway, or more so. They did this without making it easy, and emphasising the personal challenge."Peter Reid, Photography Masterclass: Portrait Encounters
