Hawkwood College, near Stroud, is a registered charity and an independent centre for adult education. Its founding anthroposophical ethos provides a welcoming context for short courses on the theme of creative exploration. These include arts & crafts as well as personal and spiritual development, music, health & well-being, nature and sustainability. There is a friendly, informal atmosphere and no formal qualifications are needed to participate. Hawkwood offers short courses in a wide variety of subjects.

 

Our courses are in a wide variety of formats, typically from one day to over a week, or longer modular courses extending over a year. If you live locally you are welcome to attend on a non-residential basis. Our course participants come from throughout the United Kingdom as well as abroad, enjoying the comfortable, homestyle residential opportunities. You are advised to book your courses early to ensure yourself a place on the course as well as accommodation on-site, if needed.
