Design Tasting Course (4 Tuesdays over 4 Weeks)

7 November, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 28 November, 2023 @ 4:30 pm


This is a 4 day course (1 day per week) which allows you to sample all the flavours of Graphic Design whilst getting off screen and back to the drawing board!

Graphic Design Unplugged

Each session will focus on the human side of the creative process (without AI and computers) to provide you with the conceptual skills and ingredients needed to create the tastiest artwork, keeping the true craft of Graphic Design alive.

Artwork produced by real people could become a value in itself in a world where more and more design processes are being overtaken by AI. (See Will AI Make Human Art More Valuable?)

For those considering a degree or career in Graphic Design this is an exciting opportunity to get a head start and expand your portfolio, or for those with a keen interest in exploring the craft or doing something creative, this might be just what you’ve been looking for!

The Design Tasting Course has been structured so that your skills will build on each of the previous sessions, though we do understand you may wish to only book an individual session. (Please note that places are limited so priority may be given to those booking the full course.)

This course takes place at Assembly Arts, Lancaster – a new, dynamic, supportive and collaborative visual arts hub in the centre of Lancaster (location at the bottom of this page). Tea and Coffee will be available throughout the sessions, and there are plenty of excellent places to enjoy lunch in the city centre (or feel free to bring your own).
