Welcome back!

Friday was a good day in the workshops...we were so pleased to see 4 of last year's graduates returning and using the workshops as part of the associate membership scheme; it's a great facility in which artists can apply to the college to become an 'associate member' which for a small fee will give them a range of benifits such as access to the HCA library and Folly Arts shop...a further application can be made to use the workshops at Folly Lane on a friday....

Gemma (Jewellery course) in Small Metals
