About us

We are a craft organisation and registered charity based in Leigh Park, Hampshire, with impact across the UK. We literally make space for people and organisations involved in craft, through a programme of workshops and experiences that are co-created with community partners and through consultation with local people. 

Our specially tailored projects inspire, challenge, skill-up, engage and build new audiences for the sector.  They have lasting local impact, and are often transformational for participants. Working in collaboration with local charities, essential need services and community groups we are inclusive to all, making space for a thriving, creative community.

We offer both first-time experiences of craft and work with those who want to take their skills to the next level. We enable people to develop new ways of thinking about craft and experience first-hand the important presence of craft in everyday life.

Raising the profile of craft in all its forms, we work with local and national arts organisations, contributing to debate, supporting makers and providing opportunities.

Through our outreach projects, we work with partners including schools, children’s centres, family learning environments and retirement homes.
