Creative Escapes Short Courses at West Dean

Make more of your weekend with our NEW Saturday and Sunday short courses. If you are looking for a short break which offers the chance to be creative then look no further! After a busy week in the office maybe you’re wanting a weekend away to escape everyday life, then paint, print, carve and more surrounded by stunning South Downs scenery. Stay on-site for the full weekend escape experience and really immerse yourself in the inspiring environment of West Dean College.

Engaging in craft has been proven to boost mental wellbeing and reduce stress*. Benefits include improved mindfulness, better cognitive function, less anxiety and increased self-awareness. Not to mention the satisfaction of going home with a new skill or creation. Learn something new and meet like-minded students, returning home feeling refreshed and ready to take on the week ahead.

Even though the course was only two days, we left feeling completely ready and able to start marbling at home.
