City & Guilds of London Art School

At this new Saturday Club, Club members will use traditional skills to make a series of hand-crafted artworks with a contemporary twist, working towards an ambitious final piece to exhibit in the Summer Show.

You will design your own coat of arms, featuring objects and symbols that demonstrate what’s most important to you and your family or friends, such as your pet dog, your favourite trainers or your mobile phone. Over the course of the Club, you’ll learn an exciting range of techniques including etching, casting in plaster and gilding with gold leaf onto glass. You’ll even have the chance to carve a small relief in wood.

This is a rare opportunity to explore specialist skills with expert tutors at City & Guilds of London Art School, learn techniques and find new ways to channel your creativity.

Club members will also take part in national events including Masterclasses with leading industry professionals and the Summer Show, where Saturday Clubs nationwide exhibit their work in a public exhibition – all for free!

Club dates:
8 October 2022 to 24 June 2023

Applications are now closed for 2022-23. Any further applicants will be added to a waiting list and be notified if a place becomes available.
