Art Workshop

Art Workshop is a new, not-for-profit, space in central Swanage dedicated to providing accessible art workshops for everyone, regardless of artistic skill or resources.

We specialise in easy, low-tech art-making for people who want space to develop confidence or socialise. We are all volunteers which helps keep our costs low. We runs group where anyone can come to learn how to make art in a supportive friendly environment. We have our own premises, which are light, practical and full of art materials and ideas. “It’s a beautiful experiential space”.

It is crucial for us at AW to be inclusive for all those who experience ongoing health problems, disabilities or for whom life is a challenge. We aim to always treat each person with respect, working together to make achievable and enjoyable artwork.

We welcome you to look in at any of our sessions, without pressure.
