Introduction to Studio Practice is designed to develop your creative awareness and understanding of contemporary art practice. On this course, you will experience a wide range of media including drawing, collage and sculpture.


You will have an opportunity to try a range of techniques and materials including compressed charcoal, gouache and wires on various surfaces as well as translate and re-interpret the works of other contemporary artists. Participants will be challenged to transform their own work from 2D to 3D, from 3D back to 2D again to evolve it into a new form each time. The sessions will end with a short critique of the work where the participants can share feedback and receive one to one input from the workshop leader.


The intention of each activity is to exercise the creative process while working on skills that form a creative studio practice. The basic skills required for carrying out the tasks will be demonstrated by the leader and guidance given throughout the sessions.

The Hat Factory

The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.

It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.

The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
