We are a self sustaining non profit venture that runs independently of any government support or other regular source of funding. Our aim to bring local artists, craft enthusiasts, designers, makers and complete beginners together under one roof to share ideas, learn, teach and be inspired to create. We offer a combination of workshops, open studio time and informal clubs and drop in sessions aiming to be inclusive of all ages, income and abilities. Any profits generated by our project go towards funding free workshops for the local community.
The day to day running is predominantly carried out by volunteers. We have a strong environmental ethic at The Create Place and source as many of our materials second hand as possible, and the majority of our facilities have been donated by the local community. We place a strong emphasis on recycling and up cycling old and unwanted items into new items through our workshops.
