Philippa Craddock, Unit 3c, Imperial Studios, 3/11 Imperial Road, London, SW6 2AG
We supply all the ingredients, tools, a protective apron and expertise required to complete the course and create the designs.
The nearest train stations are: Imperial Wharf (overground trains) and Fulham Broadway (underground trains), both approximately 10 minute walks from our studio.
There is an app called ‘citymapper’ which is an excellent navigation tool if you are not familiar with the city, it will guide you through the best and quickest routes to your destination.
There is a selection of cafes, restaurants and eateries a short walk from our studio, in the surrounding area.
We would suggest exploring booking.com, do take into consideration how far you would like to travel each day. We do not have a recommended list of hotels but a couple of suggestions nearby would be a Double Tree Hilton (approximately 5-10 minute walk). The Chelsea Harbour Hotel (approximately 15 minute walk). If you would like to explore London during your time across the workshop, we would recommend staying somewhere in Kensington or Chelsea, they are both beautiful areas and a little more central, however they are further from the studio, approximately 30/40 minute walk and may be more suitable for public transport. Sloane Square is about a half an hour bus/15 minute taxi ride from the studio and it is a great area too.
