The programmes are tailored individually by Art & Design tutors and all designed to encourage exploration and spark creativity.

This year you will be creating portraits with Artists Jim McElvaney. Exploring printmaking with designer Aprille Broomhead of Scarlett and Valentine. Working in 3D with maker extraordinaire Anna Wiggins and understanding the possibilities of technology with Ben Tew from the SIA Creative Technology Lab.

Club Members also take part in Masterclasses with leading industry professionals, come together for an inspirational visit to London, and show their work in a major public exhibition at Somerset House.

The National Saturday Club network is wide-reaching and continually developing. All its participants – Club Members, tutors, student assistants and industry professionals – benefit from being connected and able to share knowledge and best practice.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for running the scheme, our son really enjoyed it. Being a teenager he may not have said that to you in any articulate way but it was noticeable that out of any of the clubs I have periodically tried to get him to go along to, he independently got himself sorted and to and from Art club and refused to miss any. I know that is the basic level of commitment you might hope to see but from our son that represents a huge improvement. He really looked forward to it every week. He also particularly enjoyed the jewellery making and metal work - in fact I have a lovely pair of earrings courtesy of his efforts. - Feedback from the parent of a Club Member
