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 love the process of making things. It's therapeutic. The jewellery workshop brings together the kinds of things I like - shiny objects, different shapes and textures. I'm really proud of the work that I'm doing."
