New Logo, New Studios!

We have had renovation work done on the studios in Reddish and the result is a fresh, contemporary space which will enable us to offer refreshments through the week and more public workshops when we re-launch in the coming months. We have two additional rooms, a new toilet and sinks and a fixed computer area.

We also have a colourful new logo and new information for our social media accounts:

Next Arc Centre Exhibition
