This summer you could be sitting on a beach, or….
This summer you could design the perfect garden, create a
stunning print, write a bestselling book or take incredible
photographs underwater – and you won't even have
to leave Cornwall to do it.
University College Falmouth has gathered together some of
the UK's most talented specialists to offer a unique
series of exciting Summer Schools. With full access to the
College's studios, workshops and technical resources,
each Summer School course is designed to introduce you to
the very highest levels of professional practice.
The diverse range of Summer School courses include: Garden
Design, Printmaking, Novel Writing, Writing for Children,
Underwater Photography, Glassmaking and Ceramics. Ranging
from three days to a full week, each course will be led by
experts in their field, many of whom teach at the College.
For example, the Garden Design course will be led by Richard
Sneesby, the nationally known landscape architect and garden
designer. Richard designed an award-winning garden at the
Chelsea Flower Show in 2000, has written and presented two
television series on garden design and is the course leader
for Garden Design at University College Falmouth.
World-renowned printmakers Freya Payne and John Howard will
be running the Printmaking Summer School, which is aimed at
both experienced printmakers and beginners. With full access
to the College's workshops, the course will cover a
variety of techniques, including autographic and photographic
work in intaglio media, etching, aquatint, lithography, woodcut,
linocut and silkscreen.
Acclaimed writer Jane Pollard, author of 21 published books,
will lead the Summer School in Novel Writing, introducing
aspiring authors to the techniques and skills every writer
needs and top children's author Karen King, who has
written more than 90 children's books, will be running
the course in Writing for Children.
And if you ever fancied coming face to face with a basking
shark – and taking its picture – the College's
Underwater Photography course is the perfect place to learn
how. University College Falmouth has more than 10 years'
experience in teaching underwater photography and students
will have access to state-of-the-art digital equipment. And
because Cornwall's waters are amongst the clearest in
the UK, with an incredible range of marine life, it's
the ideal environment in which to learn. The Underwater Photography
course is open to all divers who have reached PADI Advanced
Open Water level or its equivalent.
Professor Alan Livingston, Principal of University College
Falmouth, says: "I'm delighted with the diversity
and the range of the Summer School programme. The College
has attracted some of the very best specialist tutors and
these Summer School courses are an excellent opportunity for
the general public to gain from their skills and experience.
I'm sure the Summer Schools will a great success and
next year I hope we'll be offering an even wider selection
