A week of art at Dillington House with David!

“We all just wanted to say a big thank you for what was an outstanding day yesterday at Dillington.  
You opened our eyes and minds to so much and have inspired us.  We all agreed that if we’d had you as a teacher during our early formative years we could have looked at art so differently.  
As it is, you have had a profound effect on our later formative years and we are looking at art and feeling it differently already, thank you.” G.G. Dorset 

Sadly, Dillington House closed its doors in September 2023 after the new, unitary council in Somerset voted to withdraw funding.
Forty members of staff lost their jobs and I of course, lost a venue that I loved to teach at.
Dillington was one of the very last dedicated, adult community education centres in the U.K. and it will be difficult to find anything to match its history, its setting, the quality of its hospitality and the friendliness of the people who worked there.
