Welcome come on in .....
In 2016 we are pleased to be offering some amazing opportunities for people to come to our studio and learn from the very best in the industry; so keep an eye out on this page for the upcoming workshops, meetings and events.
Based within former Atkins hosiery factory situated in the centre of Hinckley in Leicestershire, this Grade II listed building has been completely redeveloped to provide nearly 40,000 square feet of space. It is divided into creative studios and serviced office space, an art gallery, café, and meeting and function rooms.
It is also the home of our welcoming happy studio, so we thought it was the perfect place to facilitate workshops for some of the best talent, allowing people to have amazing learning opportunities in the midlands.
