Arts Hub

A new Visual Arts and Design Centre has opened at West Nottinghamshire College’s Derby Road campus in Mansfield.

The college has transformed a former workshop building into a contemporary two-storey hub boasting studios and workshops, modern teaching space, and bright and airy exhibition areas. It represents the final stage in the college’s £40m investment programme to upgrade its estate across Ashfield and Mansfield.

The centre is home to a range of studios for art, textiles, fashion, design and manufacture, screen-printing and graphic design; workshops for 3D, woodwork, metalwork and ceramics, plus a photography studio, darkroom and digital suite.

Its entrance foyer will serve as an exhibition space for students to display their work. Steve McAlone, head of creative industries and digital technologies, said: “This fantastic facility signals the next stage in the development of our art and design curriculum. It offers vibrant and exciting opportunities to study a range of creative arts programmes in a purpose-designed building with up-to-date facilities, equipment and resources.

“Furthermore, it brings together all of the curriculum in the School of Creative Industries and Digital Technologies, which further enhances opportunities for learners to work in new and innovative ways across a range of art forms.”
