"My experience was invaluable - I had one of the best weeks of my life. Everyone was so friendly and went above and beyond, totally invested in helping my ambitious ideas come to reality. I was overwhelmed by their generosity with both materials and time."
"I’ve gained a valuable set of unique transferable skills that I can use for other projects and also a chance to discuss with tutors opportunities available and how they came to do what they do."
The Creative Dimension Trust (TCDT) offers workshops, where tuition and materials are free, to young people who show potential in forging a career pathway where precise hand-eye co-ordination, and the ability to understand and construct 3-dimensional shapes are prerequisite. Our workshops are now open to 14-19 year olds.
TCDT offers a wide range of workshops from stone letter carving to sign writing on skateboards and architectural model making. The Trust is determined to show our talented young attendees the vast range of potential employment opportunities related to the transferable skills which students develop through our diverse programme.
The Creative Dimension Trust is very excited to announce that our Work Experience Programme has relaunched in 2023.
