The workspace 

Our spacious workshops provide a calm environment for our students to focus on their particular choice of activity.

The pleasant atmosphere and the hands on engagement with materials, which is part of the process of making and doing, provides an experience which many people, including those with more profound and complex needs, can find beneficial and even therapeutic.

As well as providing for those with learning difficulties we offer a number of places to people with disabilities who would otherwise have limited possibilities to pursue art and craft activities.

Our students

Many of our students are people who experience the world in a very individual manner, responding in their own unique way. Our experienced team of tutors, support staff and volunteers are on hand to encourage their full potential, taking advantage of a modern, well equipped studio, to produce often striking and surprising art work and designs.

Community ethos

Clearing up, cleaning and recycling also form an important part of studio activity and students are encouraged to play a full part in taking responsibility for their workspace.

We take recycling seriously and have a positive attitude to green issues. We buy recycled materials when ever possible and reuse as much of our own as we can. We try and support other social enterprises and attempt to buy ethically, sourcing goods and services from local businesses when available.
