As well as our scheduled classes we also host bespoke creative parties for any occasion and corporate team building events in our large workshop space.

Alongside our large workshop we also have a smaller studio for all the family to enjoy making crafts, which is open every day except Wednesday (with free tea and coffee for the adults and squash for the kids!) See our ‘Book a Get Crafty Session’ section for more details.

We offer our facilities to hire and can provide private tuition too.

Mindfulness Mondays 
It’s the start of the week, the kids are going back to school and it’s a chance to reflect on what an amazing summer we’ve had. (Maybe not the weather!) but the memories we will share with the friends and family we have seen. I’m feeling very grateful for this. 

What are you doing today? 

I’ve been using this photo for our children’s exploring our emotions through art and mindfulness course for 4 years now. I still can’t find a better image to provide the feeling I want the children to experience as part of our mindfulness class. 

Our new course starts today at 4pm. We have some spaces so if you’d like your child to give it a try. Check out the information on our website then give us a call to book on. Just £15 for your first session today then if you like it we can sign you up to the remaining course. 

All of our creative classes are designed to inspire, teach and relax. We have so many adults classes to choose from, why not give one a try.

What People Say About Artshed Arts

Angela Jarman

We’ve just attended a wet felting workshop with Helen Jacobs. It was great – the materials provided were ample and the time of the workshop was just right – enough to make some beautiful things, but not too long for our attention to fade. Helen was great – her demonstration of the technique was clear and easy to follow and her explanations showed the depth of her knowledge. Really enjoyable and I’d love to do another one.

Another lovely morning at the Art Shed, my daughter has taken part in many art and craft activities therd. Each time she has learnt a new skill she is keen to carry on at home and completes a beautiful piece of work because of the support and encouragement she is given by such a knowledgeable and friendly team.

We can’t wait till next time!

My daughter attended a bracelet making

party at the Artshed at the weekend and loved it! Well organised and fun, the girls loved creating their own jewellery inspired and guided by the friendly staff. Would highly recommend it.
