Organisation details


Henshaws Arts & Crafts Centre provides vocational training for people with disabilities. Our aim is to support people to reach their true potential by empowering them and providing them with independence skills, confidence and arts, crafts and horticulture training.

During the week our Art Makers, who all have disabilities and/or visual impairments, work in our arts and crafts workshops. From horticulture, health & wellbeing and multisensory to jewellery, paper, textiles and pottery, Art Makers can follow a personal programme tailored to their own needs. They also create original products to sell through Handmade at Henshaws, our very own social enterprise.

We welcome visitors to meet our Art Makers, explore our showcases and discover our friendly café. The Centre is a focal point within the local community and stages regular events such as exhibitions, live music, theatre, craft fairs and activities for children and adults with visual impairments and learning disabilities.
