Also on the main campus we provide a venue for courses in the arts including Empty Space Theatre, music, drama, fine arts, multimedia and graphic design. These include a music production studio, life drawing room, photographic dark rooms, studio and lab and a state-of-the-art theatre. The centre also provides purpose-built workshops for construction trades such as joinery, plumbing, and brickwork as well as rooms for courses like stone carving and electrical work. The centre was built to meet the labour market needs of the thriving creative and conservation industries in our local area and to provide the skills necessary to help conserve our architectural and craft heritage.
