Creative Media Workshops

From 8 February 2017 we will be running 2 workshops every week. They are all free to attend for current University of Sheffield students, but places are limited to 20 students per workshop (except TV Studio Workshop where this is limited to 12).

It is highly recommended to ensure a place that you book onto the workshop as early as possible. You may be allowed to attend if you just turn up but sometimes this may not always be possible, and If you can’t make a workshop you’ve signed up to then please cancel your place to allow another student to attend.

All equipment for workshops are provided, but if you are attending an editing/computer based session please complete the following Creative Media Account form (as well as the booking form) so you can log onto our iMacs.
