Learning in Inspirational Surroundings

Our gallery workshop on the Barbican is the perfect place to learn where inspiration can be drawn from the quaint streets and picturesque harbour as well as being able to learn about contemporary designs and techniques from the jewellery exhibited, putting learning into context.

All classes are conducted in the purpose built studio above the gallery and are limited to 4 people.
Our vocational courses can be combined with holidaying in the South West – Cornwall with its quaint fishing villages and beautiful beaches and Devon with its moorlands and market towns.

Plymouth offers sailing, fishing, golfing and much more – for your family, partner or friends whilst you do the course.
