Our accessible art studio is based in Hulme, close to Manchester city centre.
The studio is a welcoming, friendly and respectful place, working in painting, illustration, animation, photography, printmaking, ceramics and textiles.
The studio features a dark room, a kiln, printing press, digital photographic and video equipment, and specialist textiles equipment. Artists use iMacs, MacBooks and iPads as well as professional editing software such as Photoshop and AfterEffects.
We explore creative ideas and build artistic skills, which enables artists to identify and develop their own independent, creative practice.
