Geographical remit: 


We are the leading teaching institution for craft practice in the UK, unique in being the last remaining example of an experimental rural arts college predicated on a mission to change society through progressive education.


Recognised internationally as a centre of excellence for art, design and conservation education, we are currently engaged in an ambitious period of growth spurred on by our acquisition of KLC School of Design, the expansion of our course portfolio, and the imminent delivery of major capital re-developments.
