Activities & Workshops

Share

We have a varied range of activities that we undertake in the Studio, some tailored for adults with learning disabilities; some for children; regular drop-in sessions for everyone to enjoy; and programmed workshops where you can learn new skills and gain a new hobby.

The Studio is available for everyone to enjoy and is the perfect place for you to come and utilise as a Studio space for your own work, or to simply come and try something new whilst meeting new people.

Listed below is a general idea of the activities and groups currently running in the studio. Based on a fortnightly timetable if a group / activity sounds interesting please contact us for further details.

We’re always looking for new ideas and strive to offer a programme as varied as possible. If we don’t offer what you’re looking for, or you would like to deliver an activity, and are looking for a base, please get in contact and we’ll try out best to accommodate your needs
