The Arts and Crafts Centre Appeal is a once in a generation opportunity to establish the Centre at the forefront of disability support, and its expansion will be a lasting legacy.  For 21 years, it has attracted tourists, engaged community groups, and been a life-force in Knaresborough's cultural and social prosperity. Art Maker Karina holding a pink heart sculpture that she has made

We have big dreams for our Arts and Craft Centre; our art makers refuse to be limited by their disability, and we refuse to be limited in our ambition. 

The Centre opened in 1998 with 50 art makers, and we now support over 175 each week.  This has caused a strain on our buildings and facilities.  As well as this the needs of our art makers have changed, and we now support people with a wider range of disabilities and support needs.  We urgently need to update the Centre to reflect these changes and ensure we give people with disabilities confidence and choice in their own lives.

Your donations and fundraising efforts can help us support even more people with disabilities to turn brush skills into life skills.
