Education

NCCD is committed to supporting learning for people of all ages. We offer a variety of craft, design and dance workshops and events throughout the year.

Our workshops range from craft and design and visual arts to dance and movement and we can work with you to develop a bespoke workshop or project that meets your specific creative or curriculum needs.

All workshops can include a talk and tour around our galleries, along with activities designed to accompany the current exhibitions. Alternatively, we can deliver workshops or longer projects in your educational setting.

For more information or to book, please contact the learning team

Our current education offers are:

Core Offer — Printmaking Workshop

As an ongoing option throughout the year, we work with locally-based artist Harriott Brand, to deliver a printmaking workshop. Various printmaking options are available, including mono, lino or collagraph printing techniques.

This session works well if the pupils are working on a specific theme at school and want to explore it in more detail with different media. Schools can either bring their own inspiration with them if they are following a specific topic, or can be inspired by our current programme of exhibitions and showcases.

£220 for 4 hour workshop
