With the assistance of supporting artists you can attend skill-sharing workshops, develop talents for drawing, painting, stop-motion animation, ceramics, collage, textiles, print-making & more. All our exciting projects are designed to develop your talents and confidence within an encouraging and supportive environment.

Explore your creative side in one of our three dedicated arts studios, located at The Grey Horse in Heaton Norris, Prospect House in Hazel Grove and Vernon House, within Stockport’s beautiful Vernon Park.

You could even see your art work exhibited in a high profile venue. Our “They Said, We Said” exhibition was shown at The John Rylands in Manchester, receiving over 60,000 visitors.  In Spring 2018, 50 of our artists had work exhibited at The People’s History Museum.

Ceramics Studio

Thanks to a generous grant from the Manchester Airport Community Trust Fund we now have a kiln and can fire your ceramics so they will stand the test of time. You can see some of the beautiful works that have already been created below.

Learn more about our ceramics offer on our dedicated Ceramics page.


Stop Motion Animation

Another popular activity is animation. Learn to make your own stop-motion films and get involved with set-building, storyboarding, clay modelling and more.

See some of the artists’ great work on YouTube here.
