Our tutors will continue to run some of their courses here independently and soon you will be able to contact them directly to find out more about their plans (we’ll post links and contact details as soon as they become available).
*The Film & Video Workshop will very much be continuing as an educational charity and our resources and facilities will continue to be put to good use.
