Foyles launches 'Masterclass' series

Foyles is to launch a series of Foyles Masterclasses in 2015 in subjects including photography, cookery and publishing.

The masterclasses will be taught by experts and authors, often drawing on their latest publications.

Foyles Masterclasses, covering areas including craft, psychology, illustration and more, will take place in the Auditorium of the new Foyles Charing Cross Road, “building on the educational heritage of the former home of Central St Martins College”.

The sessions will be programmed by Becky Fincham, a freelance consultant who worked alongside Foyles’ head of events Andy Quinn on the bookshop’s grand opening festival in June.

Fincham, who will report to Quinn, will become manager of Foyles Masterclasses.
