Explore a vibrant range of subjects on one of our short courses
If you want to develop fresh perspectives with leading thinkers or get creative with contemporary artists, our courses are the place to start. Inspired by our world-renowned collections and research, we bring together Library experts and guest specialists to provide a unique learning experience.
We offer evening and daytime courses across a range of subjects, or you can develop skills in different art forms on our practical courses and weekend masterclasses. Intimate class sizes mean you'll get the most out of every session with us. On our study days, you'll hear a range of specialists debate key themes from the Library's collections and exhibitions.
Courses are for adults (18 years and over). If you are aged between 16-17 years, please contact AdultLearning@bl.uk.
Please note we operate a no refund or exchange policy on Adult Course tickets.
