In 2007 we, Sarah, Kim and Kerry, founder directors of Workshop 305 CIC, having worked together for many years, began the process of establishing an independent company to develop and supercede the arts and crafts provision, which at that time was being provided by ourselves through Wandsworth Adult Social Services.

Workshop 305 CIC, (named after the address of the Atheldene Resource Centre at 305 Garratt Lane where the workshops began) would remain dedicated to the arts and crafts and to working with adults with learning disabilities or physical disabilities but would become a social enterprise in the form of a Community Interest Company, (CIC).

The company was registered in May 2009. After initial support from UnLtd, Wandsworth Adult Learning and GLE-OneLondon - followed by grant and loan funding from the Social Enterprise Investment Fund - our newly refurbished premises on Weir Road opened for business in September 2010.

Our aim is to focus on high quality workshops that provide a rewarding and challenging environment for students to explore ideas and practices. In addition, as an independent business and a social enterprise we are able to offer a wide range of opportunities which help us to support our core business. As a social enterprise all our profits are used to support the work that we do both in the immediate and the wider local community.
