At West Dean College of Arts and Conservation students can expect a creative environment with a forward thinking approach, professional connections and strong focus on craft techniques, whether these are deployed in the making of new work or in the conservation of existing objects.
The College offers a rich arts environment and a focus on craft skills with vocational application. Small classes, extended studio access, talented tutors and exceptional facilities enable you to develop your passion and reach your full potential.
Specialisms include conservation and crafts subjects, and benefit from close connections with the heritage sector, visiting industry experts and access to the College’s unique collection. Alumni can be found in prestigious museums and heritage organisations worldwide and as independent conservators, makers, designers or repairers.
“Attending West Dean College is a once in a life time opportunity. Smaller numbers in the workshop allows for more dedicated one-on-one time and provides an opportunity to learn skills outside of your core course through cross disciplinary collaboration on projects both in and out of the workshops.”
President of the Student Association
