With Christmas just around the corner, here at Artcore we have just the thing to get us all in the festive spirit and get people creating and crafting!

With our brand new Creative Craft Kits we have something for everyone. From children’s card making kits to creative watercolour kits, these brilliant kits make perfect gifts or are great to have a go at yourself! Check out our range of kits in our brand new online shop on our website!

Not only will the money we make from these kits go towards us running our workshops, creating free material packs for classes and much more, Artcore have decided that for every kit we sell, we will be donating a kit to a disadvantaged family in the area to make sure everyone has access to arts and crafts this Christmas!

If our amazing kits weren’t enough, we are also running a festive raffle this year with a range of fantastic prizes to be won, including items by local artists and a fabulous hamper worth £300!!

Please donate to Artcore

Times are very uncertain at the moment, but despite having to shut our doors to the public, we are still working hard to reach out to the people who need us the most.
We are delivering packs of art materials and running Stay Connected workshops for people who feel isolated and older people in care homes. We are making online resources for young people and families. We've even been running sessions on Facebook, Zoom and You Tube.

Can you help us to Stay Connected with people through creativity? A small donation to Artcore could make a difference to the well-being of people who really needs a creative boost at the moment.

Help Artcore to spread the joy of creativity! Just £10 would cover the cost of a person being able to participate in one of our courses.

Thank you for your support.
