Accessibility and Useful Information
Studios and Workshops
Please note that The Forge, The Orangery and the Sculpture Courtyard are not in the main College building. The Orangery is situated in the gardens 25 metres from the house; the Forge and Sculpture Courtyard are part of the Sussex Barn complex approximately 8 minutes walk from the main College building.
Materials and Equipment
Our workshops and studios are all well equipped - Art Studios have easels, drawing boards and portable equipment. Our other specialist workshops - metal, pottery, woodworking - have appropriate tools and equipment for many activities.
In the course details, received in your booking confirmation pack, or accessible on our website, you are given a detailed list of materials and equipment which are needed for each course.
In some courses part, or occasionally all, of these costs are included in the fees. The course details also list the materials/equipment that will be stocked in our CRAFT SHOP for your course - it is often best to wait and discuss requirements with the tutor before purchasing specific items.
Any items that are best brought with you (eg jam jars) are also listed separately.
Please remember that on practical courses you will often need to purchase materials throughout the course to complete projects- eg silver on jewellery courses, paints etc.
All Personal Protection Equipment appropriate for each activity is supplied by the College except footwear - steel capped boots are required for courses held in the Forge.
New UK immigration rules state that if you plan to engage in any kind of study while in the UK you should now enter as a student and not as a tourist.
If you are studying in this country for less than six months and are a non-visa national, you may apply for a Student Visitor Visa before arriving in the UK or you may apply for entry clearance as a Student Visitor when you arrive at a UK airport.
This will give you full details and gives you a list of the documents and evidence that you will need to produce to confirm your student and financial status.
If you need any further guidance, the website for the UK Council for International Student Affairs is a good source of information.
