Why not see out the summer with a weekend dedicated to re-connecting with your Diploma? The Diploma Gathering in Lincolnshire at the end of August will be a jam-packed weekend of workshops and accreditations. As usual, there will be opportunities to have tutorials, share your work, catch up with friends and hopefully make some new ones.

We're doing things a little differently this time: it will be an all-camping event (though of course if camping's not your thing then you can stay off site and join us each day). In response to feedback from previous Gatherings, there will also be a programme of children's workshops and activities too so feel free to bring your family along.

We can't promise bank holiday sunshine but we can promise you a great weekend!

The £85 ticket price includes camping, access to all workshops and six delicious meals, starting with dinner on Friday evening. Children's tickets cost £40. Under 4s go free, but must be registered. All children must be accompanied by an adult and remain the responsibility of their parent(s)/carer(s) at all times.


The Inkpot is an 18 acre permaculture farm. There are compost loos, hot showers and even a swimming pond, so don't forget your cozzie! There will be some onsite parking but, if at all possible, please use public transport. Check out the Inkpot's website for location and travel details.

To request or offer a liftshare, please post the info on the Facebook event page.


Our friend Fran Pickering will be providing us with six hearty meals using local, seasonal and organic (where possible) produce. All food will be vegetarian. If you have any other dietary requirements and/or allergies, please specify on the booking form.


We need you! It's your event - please consider offering a workshop. As well as the workshops there will be space at the edges for discussions with fellow apprentices and you can book a tutorial with one of the tutors in attendance.

If you would like to offer a Diploma-related workshop or are hoping to accredit at the event, please contact Cath as soon as possible via [email protected] or call the office on 0113 2307461.


Payment can be made by credit/debit card or PayPal.
