Coventry University

At Coventry University Art&Design Saturday Club, engaging creative workshops explore various art and design processes with different practitioners. In 2019/20, members experimented with a wide range of creative tools from traditional media such as pencil and charcoal to modern techniques including digital design and laser cutting. Under the theme ‘The Hybrid’, the group explored processes such as print, 3D fabrication and metalwork. Alumni of the faculty worked with members on illustration, animation and games design whilst specialist staff led workshops in mould making, metalwork and clay modelling.

The Saturday Club at Coventry University offers Club members a unique opportunity to build new skills and develop creative confidence in a range of art-forms and with artists from a wide variety of backgrounds, in a nurturing and non-pressured environment. Members have the opportunity to experience and use state-of-the-art facilities and receive expert tuition from Coventry University’s tutors and students.

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

Club dates:
Autumn 2020 – Summer 2021

My Saturday Club has made me more confident in every piece of work I do. I’ve learned to work with my failure, instead of giving up.

This club has reassured me this is a career I want to pursue.

This has changed my entire opinion of education and I will definitely be taking art in further education.

The club is doing creative work that there is no chance to do at school.

My daughter has really enjoyed the model making.  She’s really enjoying the club and has made good friends and actually can see now that it does relate to what she does in GCSE product design (as she is not doing GCSE art). I think it’s built her confidence around being creative.

Just to say many thanks to everyone involved in the club as my daughter loves it and she does look forward every time she goes.
