At City & Guilds of London Art School, we offer a range of specialist undergraduate and postgraduate courses in contemporary fine art, historic carving and the conservation of historic objects and books and paper.

To compliment our set of core courses, we also offer masterclasses in art and historic craft skills. Our masterclasses are usually one or two days in length and are run by master crafts people and practising artists invited to the Art School to share their expertise.

A masterclass is a great way to enhance existing art or craft skills and experience a slice of life at a real art school.


We don’t currently have any masterclasses available, but if you’d like to receive information about upcoming events and courses, please register here.
