The Hive officially started in January 2019 after we recognised the need to create a safe and inspiring space dedicated to creativity in our area. We are all creative - yes even you! Sometimes we just need a little support or time or space to practise, learn, experiment and have some fun!
The Hive is located in the old nursery block at the back of the now closed Childen's Centre. We rented the room in faith knowing that it was needed even if we didn't know who or how or precisely what is was going to look like.
The space has two sides, one dedicated to textiles: knitting, sewing, patchwork, quilting.. you name it! The other side is our art area: painting, drawing, writing, card making, lino printing. We also have space for furniture upcycling and restoration.
There are comfy seats for when you need a break from your craft which is also used by our knit and knatter group on Tuesday mornings.
We're so pleased that The Hive has become a buzzing community space and we are overjoyed by what people have made, crafted and created.
