The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

A tour of The Art House

The Art House is a creative hub based in Sheffield city centre, home to a cafe, studios, galleries and workshop rooms. Its emphasis is on providing a safe and inclusive space for "people who are normally excluded and marginalised and most unable to discover their creativity" – helping people to improve their wellbeing through creative arts.

As a charity, the Art House usually funds its work with vulnerable people through public art classes. To make up for its lack of income during lockdown, the venue is currently running a fundraising campaign – donate online. Donate a minimum of £10 and you'll get a unique pot made in the Art House pottery workshop and kiln!

Take a tour of the facilities in the video below and learn more about what people usually get up to there.
