Arts & Crafts Centre opening times
Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough are closing the centre to external visitors, until further notice, upon clinical advice, to protect our vulnerable service users and to mitigate the virus risk.
The centre works with disabled people from across the town and beyond and many of our art makers are vulnerable because of existing health conditions.
Centre Manager Maria Dawbarn said:
“After discussions with our senior management and clinical care teams and because the client group we work with are vulnerable, we have decided to reduce the risk by closing the centre to external visitors until further notice. We will also cancel any non-essential meetings and events.”
“We have always had fantastic support from the people of Knaresborough and Harrogate and I am sure they will understand our decision, which was not taken lightly.”

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.”
