Hive recognises that arts and crafts can be expensive, so we do everything that we can to make things affordable.
We offer a number of reduced fee places on all of our courses. Anybody on Universal Credit, Jobseeker’s Allowance or other low income benefits is entitled to three reduced fee places each year (one per term) – subject to availability.
On top of that we run a bursaries scheme to provide access to courses for those who wouldn’t otherwise be able to afford them. In particular, the Christine Godfrey memorial bursary pays for a year’s worth of pottery courses for a talented newcomer, in memory of our wonderful friend Christine, who was a fixture in our pottery studio for many years.
We also run a number of supported drop-in sessions, for which no membership is required and which are free to attend:
A supported drop in for people looking to create or mend wooden items, a technician will be on hand to provide support. You can pick from one of the two sessions above subject to availability.
