New workshops complete
The Development continues to take shape with progress being made all the time.
Our new Craft and In Touch workshops have been completed and everyone is delighted with the new building. A combination of materials including slate roofs with timber, stone and lime walls make the external appearance impressive. Inside, the workshops have been designed specifically around the needs and aspirations of the students who use them; a bright, spacious artist’s studio for Craft and a series of interconnected purpose built spaces for In Touch. We look forward to the installation of state of the art equipment, which will really bring the buildings to life.
With the imminent opening of the workshops comes the end of the first phase of our vision for our community. The new workshops, four in total, have improved and expanded our learning provision. We now welcome over 27 day students each week, which is a significant increase from 8 just a few years ago.
Now the workshops are complete we can turn our sights to the next phase; creating new and improved living accommodation. Construction on the site of the first two houses has started.
Our community never miss the opportunity to celebrate, so there is no doubt you will have an opportunity to share in the excitement as we open up the new phase of our Development – watch this space!
