Learn with us

Our museums offer a vibrant, extensive and varied programme of workshops, courses, classes, study days and events for individuals and groups of all ages, knowledge and interests to learn and explore with us. Our new Learning Centre, operating out of the historic basement spaces of Leighton House, links directly to the garden and is equipped to a high contemporary standard whilst retaining a unique and evocative atmosphere. We also have a dedicated area in the garden for outside learning, such as drawing and watercolour classes, horticulture, ecology and cooking.  We look to inspire creativity, and support you in acquiring new skills and knowledge, from hands on practical workshops tutored by leading contemporary artists to object-led interactive seminar sessions delivered by expert art historians and specialists.
