I seek a place that can never be destroyed, one that is pure, and that fadeth not away, and it is laid up in heaven … to them that seek it with all their heart. Read it so, if you will, in my book.’ John Bunyan

With ‘The Pilgrim’s Progress’ as our inspiration, we encourage others to explore the possibilities of engaging creatively and spiritually through the many facets of ‘communication’: from artworks, bookbinding, calligraphy, drawing, painting, marbling, music and illustration - to the exciting possibilities of printing, typography and digital design. We have a flexible exhibition and meeting space, craft-room, a studio for our Resident Artist, as well as a quiet room and refreshment area.
