As children, we were playful, imaginative and infinitely curious. In our busy lives as adults we can forget the benefits of the exciting and the new, the spontaneous and the expressive. The all pervasive internet and growing economic, political and ecological instability puts us in danger of losing what’s most vital for fulfilling personal and professional lives.
Through creativity and play, hands on making and interacting with others, Arts Lab helps to keep these elements alive.
Send us an email or pick up the phone and we can discuss a bespoke course or one-off workshop for your group. We work with all levels of experience. From complete novices to those who’ve had art in their lives and want more, our experienced facilitators will guide and inspire you. To find out what we do and who we’ve worked with, see our What we do and Who we work with pages.
Individuals can sign up to online workshops and events at the Lab to get away from the stresses of their daily lives, meet people and try something different.
Try something new and out of the ordinary, meet people and get involved in our artist-led events and workshops at the Lab. All levels of experience are welcome. From complete novices to those who’ve had art in their lives and want more, our artists will guide and inspire you.
Making art together is a fun and effective way to encourage cohesion, collaboration and creative thinking in your staff. Working alongside the artist, participants are guided in exploring and experimenting freely with a range of art materials. Go to our team building page to find out more.
As a registered non-profit organisation, the more money we raise, the more artists and projects in the community we can support. If you believe that the arts can help create positive social change then please consider making either a one-off or regular donation. If you’re thinking about making a financial contribution to Arts Lab, we would love to talk with you and share with you how your money can make the greatest impact.
If you are interested in or already working towards creativity being more integral to people’s working lives, Arts Lab would like to meet you and explore ways of working together.
Volunteers play a crucial role at Arts Lab. They are hugely valued members of our team, without whom our enterprise would run much less smoothly. Please get in touch if you want to get involved in helping to make things happen. You can also check out our Jobs & Opportunities page for regular updates.
