Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre remains open to art makers and we are delighted that we are continuing to increase our art maker numbers and workshop session attendance. Our shop is open weekdays 12noon to 4pm for people to call in to purchase handmade gifts, cards and art materials.

We are looking forward to the time when we can be fully open to members of the public and can welcome people back into our café and gardens, however for now these still remain closed.

Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre

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.

Open to all, we have an Arts & Crafts centre which is a community hub where creativity, friendships and opportunities come to life.

On weekdays our workshops are filled with Art Makers creating beautiful and unique pieces of art. We are a social enterprise and your support is hugely important to us, although the centre and gardens are currently closed to the public, you can visit our gift shop from 12 noon until 4pm Monday to Friday.

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.”
