Awards and Certificates

The City & Guilds Awards and Certificates are taught once a week in small classes. The learner will receive guided studio based tuition over the course of the weeks or months which is the equivalent of £20 per hour.

Also included in this price are the majority of the materials, catch-up studio sessions, one to one tutorials, access to the members area of the website with class notes and instruction videos, and the City and Guilds registration and external assessment.


At South West Art Courses, we keep group size small at a maximum of 8 learners. This ensures a high degree of teacher contact time while enabling enough participants for engaging group discussion.

Deposit 25% required at the time of booking with the balance due before enrolment.


The time varies depending on the type of course. Please see the individual course for days and times.

I was nervous starting this course but Carolyn and Jenni couldn't have been more encouraging.  I've learnt so many new techniques and  have developed my confidence and ability over a wide range of  media.  Highly recommended!
