People who live in yurts know about the importance of sharing knowledge. But it’s just as important for the rest of us, too.

At Yurt Academy we devote our time to developing and curating masterclasses and other events to help you be the best you can be. Our classes take place in venues across Sussex, with other locations on the way.

Our face to face masterclasses are short bursts of learning on all things curious and creative, and for professional and personal development.

Also face to face, other learning events include In-conversation-with presentations, discussions and other immersive experiences, and are designed and curated to explore society, business and the arts

Our Yurt Keepers are more than people who teach – they’re leaders who inspire you to do great things. With years of experience and expert in the design and delivery of content, our team is here to empower your future.
