Charleston The Bloomsbury Home of Art and Ideas

Charleston has always been a haven for creativity as the home of Bloomsbury group artists Duncan Grant and Vanessa Bell. We continue the legacy of the artists who lived and worked here with a series of creative workshops and masterclasses. As ever, craftsmanship, innovation and beauty remain the hallmarks of our programme.

Our intensive day-long workshops are held in Quentin Bell’s Pottery. Small class sizes mean one-on-one attention from our tutors. Our workshops begin with a chance to spend time in the House, with tours tailored to the discipline of the day. Enjoy an artisan lunch sourced from local suppliers. End the day with new knowledge and skill to enhance your continuing creative practice.
