THE ARTS HUB

Our premises on Haddington’s Hardgate offer a mixed-use venue and a centre for creative reuse of donated materials.

We also provide regular sessions for adults with additional support needs and mental health issues.

MAKERS GALLERY:

our retail area is a showcase for local artists and makers. Browse and buy original work, or we can help you commission bespoke projects.

WORKSHOP SPACE:

our versatile space is used for community group meetings as well as our daily programme of workshops and drop-in groups at affordable prices (open up for the April – June programme)

COMMUNITY SHED:

this project offers an opportunity for people to come together and develop new skills. Started in partnership with STRIVE, it engages in community based projects such as creating raised planting stations for people with disabilities, cutting and finishing wooden shields for the Haddington 700 tournament and commissioned projects and repairs.

INK STATION:

our small printmaking facility accommodates relief and intaglio printmaking with a flat bed printmaking press and inking-up materials. 1:1 and small group tuition is available.

COMMUNITY GROUPS:

the regular groups that meet in the Hub have evolved in response to demand, and are an essential part of the MADE community. Knit and Natter meet on Wednesday mornings, Sew Social on Thursday mornings and the popular Hub Art Club on Friday afternoons during term time. We also host New Beginnings Club on alternate Mondays where they are exploring a range of new arts & crafts skills.

UPCYCLING & REUSE:

the reuse of donated furniture and materials which are used in projects or upgraded for resale is essential to the success of the Hub. Thursdays have a particular focus on upcycling with our sew social group, regular 1:1 tutored furniture projects and the Shed group. The open access workspaces are available for rent for individual projects with use of donated materials.
