At Henshaws Arts & Crafts we make more than art. We bring people together in an atmosphere that never fails to inspire. Through our workshops, people living with a range of disabilities discover their talents, put them into practice and realise their full potential.
Open to all, our Arts & Crafts Centre in Knaresborough is a community hub where creativity, friendships and opportunities come to life. Every week, over 160 Art Makers take part in a range of workshops, including employability training, health and wellbeing, arts and crafts and multi-sensory.
On weekdays our workshops are filled with Art Makers creating beautiful and unique pieces of art. Visitors are welcome to come in and see what we’re making.. You can explore our accessible facilities including our cafe, shop, woodland walk and outdoor spaces. We also hold regular events including live music nights, craft fairs and family activities.
Our Centre is open to the public, with a fully licensed café and accessible facilities. We hold regular events such as exhibitions, live music and craft fairs.
We’re proud of our vibrant and friendly atmosphere which inspires both Art Makers and visitors alike. We look forward to welcoming you to the Centre very soon.
