Arts & Crafts CURRENTLY CLOSED
Our Arts and Crafts Centre will be closed to art makers and visitors for the foreseeable future.
We are considering options for what the future of the Centre will look like. Providing a safe and sustainable service will be at the heart of our decision making. We hope to work together to build a stronger Henshaws for the future.
Arts & Crafts Centre Currently Closed
Henshaws Arts and Crafts Centre in Knaresborough has had to make the very difficult decision to close until further notice.
After discussions with our senior management and because the client group we work with are so vulnerable, we have decided to reduce the risk by closing. Our dedicated staff team will still be working very hard to support other Henshaws services in Yorkshire.
We have always had fantastic support from all our art makers, parents and carers and I am sure you will understand our decision, which was not taken lightly. From all the team at the centre we send our love and support in this difficult time and look forward to seeing you all again in the near future. We will keep you informed of any further changes.

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.”
