The art studio was once Mr Buddle's forge built in 1844.  In 2011 it was converted into the art studio as it is today.  The studio consists of main class room and separate kitchen area and toilet  and waiting area for parents.  The gardens on the outside are fenced and gated where parents are welcome to sit whilst the club is in session.



The craft studio was built in August 2016 and is a multi purpose room for craft workshops.  It has a large teaching space and kitchen area.  This workshop is also suitable for disabled access.
