What happens there?
Choose from a range of art workshops and projects run by professional artists. Sessions include: screen printing, abstract and contemporary art, photography, textiles, illustration, creative digital platforms, sculpture, costume design, special effects, animation and drama and dance.

You can also take part in cooking, life skills, gym and swim sessions, as well as social outings, day trips, and respite breaks

You’ll be given support to put together your own display of your work, and have the chance to visit other artists in their studios to help inspire you and learn new skills.

We can also support you to take part in a volunteer placement. Placements are specially selected to meet your needs, and will help you to build work place skills and prepare for the world of work. Our current placements include Wentworth Woodhouse, The Retired Greyhound Trust, Stone Face Creative and Doc/Fest.
