Course Timings

Courses run from 10am to 4pm however, the course tutor requires you to be there 10-15 minutes earlier to ensure the course starts promptly. The finish time can sometimes run over slightly, so please allow for this when making your travel arrangements.

Please bring your own pens (notepad optional as there is space on course materials to add notes) and please don’t wear any expensive clothing as you will be working with raw materials that can stain or damage them such as oils, fats, colour pigments, etc. Please do not wear stiletto heeled shoes as they are not appropriate for the flooring and they will damage it.

    In addition to regular carriers such as British Airways and BMI, Scotland is well served by the budget airlines operating from airports around London and from other area hubs on routes to Scotland's major city and regional airports.

    To find flights and fares to Scotland's major airports, search on comparison sites such as:

  • SkyScanner

  • Expedia

  • Travel Supermarket

  • Cheapflights

  • TrafficScotland

  • Information and advice on driving on Scottish roads

  • Park and ride locations

  • Find a petrol station

  • Find an LPG station

  • BY COACH

    You can easily get to Scotland by road from the rest of Britain. Coach services duplicate many train routes, often with much cheaper ticket prices.The frequency of service is often similar to that of the train, although longer distance journey times are usually much longer by coach.

  • Coach services to Scotland are operated by National Express, which runs routes to Aberdeen, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness.

  • Megabus and Megabus Gold cover some routes including Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Inverness and Perth. On some overnight services, passengers have their own berth as well as a standard seat for greater comfort during their journey.

    BY CAR

  • The two main driving routes to Scotland from the south are via the east of England on the A1, or via the west using the M6, A74 (M) and M74.

    The A1, which passes by Peterborough, Doncaster, Newcastle and Berwick-upon-Tweed, gives you the option of branching off onto the A68, which takes the hilly but scenic route over the border at Carter Bar and adds an hour or so to the journey time.

    The M6 route, which goes around Birmingham, between Manchester and Liverpool and on to Carlisle, offers at least dual-carriageway driving the whole way.

    From the M74 exit at junction 6 onto Motherwell Road/A723 towards Hamilton.

    At the roundabout take 2nd Exit onto Blackweell Lane/A723
    Turn left onto Townhead Street/A72 and over 1 roundabout
    Turn right onto Park Drive and country park should be to your left.
