Arts & Crafts

At Henshaws Arts & Crafts we make more than art. We bring people together in an atmosphere that never fails to inspire.

Through our workshops, people living with a range of disabilities discover their talents, put them into practice and realise their full potential.

I like coming to Henshaws because I like art. This is my first time making mosaics. Learning to grout has been my favourite thing so far. I also like drawing my favourite characters by copying from the book. Coming here has made me more confident.”
