  • 11am to 3pm on Monday and Wednesday and:
  • 1-3pm Friday we are open for those with time on their hands wanting to explore possibilities.  

Our drop-in sessions are intended to provide an opportunity for anyone to come in and talk about what they would like to do - and for us to work out how to help you do it.    For any members of the community we provide an opportunity to drop in and find out what you can do - and if its an easy one you can be doing it inside 10 minutes.

While you work out what is your direction of creative travel we provide this service for free.  Once you are settled on a way forward then you can move on to Skills Workshops.

Skills Workshops

Once you settle on an activity that you would like to develop then you can choose from one of the paid workshops we are developing to help you on your way.

Repair Cafe

Poster for Dewsbury Repair Cafe

3rd Wednesday of the month

An international initiative to reduce the waste of our consumer society, the Repair Cafe is hosted in Dewsbury by Artists Attic. 

On the 3rd Wednesday of every month a group of 'fixers' assemble at Artists Attic ready to fix all those broken household goods, gadgets and presents that have accumulated in your cupboards and wardrobes. 

There's no guarantee that they'll be able to fix it - but you can get a sane explanation of what might be wrong with it and a serious effort by someone who knows about these things to avoid you having to drop it into landfill and buy a replacement.

The best way ever invented to save money - don't throw it away, get it fixed!

Coffee Club

11am - 12pm every Wednesday

We host the Coffee Club from 11am-12pm every Wednesday to provide an opportunity for individuals to get together in a warm, friendly, social environment.

There is no charge other than the cost of the coffee and you might like to pop in and take the opportunity to view the various artwork that is on display from time to time. 

We do this both to contribute to the community but also in an attempt to spark an interest in creative activity at every level.  Breaking down the barriers of 'I'm not an artist' and 'I can't do that' .

At Artists Attic can you walk in the door for a coffee and be learning to paint inside 10 minutes!

With the space at our premises to provide support whether it is a one-to-one personal conversation or a group discussion, Artists Attic is able to host community groups who may not have suitable space available.

The very act of bringing people into our premises exposes them to art and creative activity which can act as a catalyst to their starting on a road to recovery.

Artists Attic Trust objectives declared to the Charity Commission are to provide "..recreation or other leisure time occupation, including arts and crafts, of individuals who have need of such facilities by reason of their youth, age, infirmity or disablement, financial hardship or social and economic circumstances."  

No matter what age or whatever problem someone may have, Artists Attic Trust will seek to find a way of providing support through the creative arts.
