About ArtisOn

ArtisOn was established in 2010 in the belief that more people should be able to share the experience of creating things – the thrill of working with your hands to fashion something; the satisfaction of having an idea, then learning the skills needed to make it real. This experience can be bring great pleasure and be very therapeutic. It isn’t just for the “arty” either – our goal is that ArtisOn is for everyone!

In 2015, ArtisOn converted to being a social enterprise – a “not-for-profit” organisation. This means that although we have Directors running things like a normal business, all its assets are for the benefit of our “community” of customers and tutors with any profits being reinvested into developing ArtisOn for its’s community.

We are not supported by any external funding which could dictate what we do. Instead, we simply aim to provide what people want – a choice of the best quality customer and learning experiences possible, at the most affordable prices. After ten years, we’re very proud to say that the formula seems to work… We now have so many returning customers, that many believe ArtisOn to be an addiction and the only problem is remembering to book early to be sure of your fix!

The buzz of ArtisOn is its people, and new visitors are always very welcome. Over the years new friendships have developed and our regulars return to try something new, more challenging or specialist; to create something to give as a gift, or just to take time out, treat themselves and meet up with friends. Whether you want new skills for pleasure, time out for you, or more serious artistic development, we’ll combine great teaching and uncompromising professionalism, a warm welcome, a fantastic location, lovely folk and of course a great lunch to ensure you have a great day and feel restored.

“I have just opened a ArtisOn newsletter to find my stained glass panel on it – wow! …. I had a fantastic 2 days, the company, tutor, facilities and food are first class. You have achieved so much in such a short time, you should be very proud. Please can you put me on the waiting list for the next 2 day stained glass course, I would really like to make another panel to go along side this one. Thanks again”
