We have two Creative Spaces, one on the ground floor of the cafe and one above our shop around the corner at Oxford Street. These spaces hosts an exciting range of crafts workshops: therapeutic sessions for differently-able people, plus a diverse range of workshops for the general public too. Sessions available to the public include mosaics, wreath making, kids art workshops and so much more! For our differently-able adults and children we have crafts sessions that include mosaics, visual arts, & Artizan Organics candles and cosmetics making (hosted in the special studio above our shop on Oxford Street). For more info, drop in and/or watch this space!
A friendly welcome awaits!

Sessions for the general public (adults' and childrens' workshops ) :
Creative workshops at Artizan are run for the public to attend on Wednesday afternoons and throughout Saturdays. The workshops aim to be a source of creative escapism for anyone wanting to learn a new skill or develop an artistic interest. The small fee for workshops goes towards Artizan directly which enables us to continue supporting differently able people in Ecuador, Peru and the UK. Workshops are held between our Cafe and Creative Space at 12 Cambridge Road and our Creative Studio at 39 Oxford Street, Harrogate. They range from short art/design courses or one off mosaics, macrame, glass beaded jewellery, silk painting, hand embroidery, textiles art, watercolours, etc. We also run public workshops for children (8-13) on Saturday mornings which aim to engage the creative mind with skills learning and fun in our creative studio!
