Be an Artmaker

Our Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough, North Yorkshire offers a tranquil space for people to become Artmakers. To be an amazing Henshaws Artmaker, you need to be aged 18+ and have a disability and/or additional support needs. We can create a personal programme of creative workshops and training tailored to individual needs, and are proud to support Artmakers as they flourish creatively.
