Grow your creative skills with free workshops

A programme of unmissable workshops to help people develop your skills to work in the creative and cultural industries.

The creative skills project formerly known as DIY HIGH SCHOOL came back for 2019 as DIY LIFE SKILLS. Stay tuned for 2020 details.

DIY LIFE SKILLS gives our Queen Mary University of London students and our community vital extra practical skills for working in the creative and cultural industries. These include making videos, photography, tax, CVs, public speaking, social media for work and WordPress/blogging.

DIY LIFE SKILLS is supported by Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen Mary University of London. The workshops are free for our students and our local community.
