Press Release - 21 August 2007

New part-time courses for autumn

Inspiration to study archaeology, documentary photography and music is on offer this autumn as part of a new programme of courses for the community run by the University of Bath.

The weekly classes will run at Sarum College in Salisbury from Monday 8 October.

Open Eyes - Documentary Photography: the Art of Making Enduring Connections with Times, Peoples and Places offers students the chance to explore the work of important documentary photographers of recent times and to create their own work to exhibit at the end of the course. Course tutor Roger Vlitos is a professional photographer who has published work in major international magazines and many books on social issues.

The Archaeology of Britain's Cold War will enable students to study the military and strategic sites of the era and enjoy fieldtrips to two ‘secret sites’. The course is taught by Bob Clarke, QinetiQ Field Archaeologist and director of the Broad Town Archaeological Project.

Musicians who are interested in Performing Early Music, composed between 1300 and 1750, can join professional performer and teacher Uri Smilansky to form an Early Music ensemble to study, explore and enjoy the music.

Students can also enrol early for day courses starting next spring. Wiltshire-based crime writer Judith Cranswick will teach an entertaining Fun with writing course to help students discover the joy of writing compelling fiction. Suitable for all levels, the course will reveal how to turn an idea into a story with credible characters.

Salisbury through the lens, pencil, brush and print will give students the chance to study some of the best visual work of the past inspired by the city and its surrounding area. Students will be able to create their own work inspired by the region and learn the strategies and techniques to improve their art.
