About Us

Long Eaton Art Room is a voluntary organisation that believes anyone can benefit from the therapeutic qualities of art & craft making. We were established in April 2006 by a group of enthusiastic creative people for the general public to use as a meeting place where they can relax, have fun making things and learn at their own pace.

Along with our open studio sessions here at the art-room,  we do a lot of community workshops – our focus is to provide services accessible to all, including working with disadvantaged people to help them play a fuller role in the community.

As well as participating in art for pleasure we are proud to say that we have helped some of our customers to progress onto either further education or become successful self employed artists.

It’s not just the customers; we have supported many people to set up their own business or into employment following training courses and work placement with us and we can also provide volunteering opportunities.We have also built strong ties with a number of community groups, local schools and the local authority, running creative workshops at either the Art Room or at specific community events.
