Let your artistic urges out this summer and try something creative at City Lit, London's largest provider of short courses for adults. Etching, photography, fabric printing and recycling, pottery, abstract painting and even basketry are on offer — there seems to be a course for any kind of artistic practise you can possibly think of.
Here are some of the most London-y courses available to pique your interest:
London Art Walks
We love the idea of exploring the capital through its art. City Lit's summer offer includes a huge variety of London-focused art tours and walks. Join a one-day experience and discover the history of Legal London walking around Temple and the Inns of Court.
Experimental Fashion and Textiles
If you've visited the current Alexander McQueen exhibition at the V&A museum and dream of having even a quarter of his creative genius, why not get started with fashion at City Lit. Summer courses include knitting, clothes recycling and even wearable sculptures.
Painting Inspired by London Museums' Collections
Victorian Costume Jewellery
Since the Victorian era, costume jewellery has become more and more popular and even replaced gold and silver pieces in many women's jewellery boxes. This one day course covers the history of this kind of jewellery from 1800 to the present day and helps you recognise the difference between good quality and poorly-made pieces.
Sculpture Influenced by Barbara Hepworth
Grapple with the inspirational work of the famous English artist, immerse yourself in a week-long course and learn sculpture, collage and drawing techniques. The course includes many hours of practical activities and a visit to Hepworth's retrospective, currently on show at Tate Britain.
There's plenty more to choose from. See the full list of art & design summer courses here.
