Arts & Crafts

The New View Art Room is an artist led studio offering workshops for those in need of support to improve their mental health, build confidence, learn new skills, have fun and take time to relax

COVID 19 UPDATES -July 20 - We are currently holding art via zoom sessions and with the Olive tree cafe (spaces must be booked) we hope to resume in the Ipsum building shortly with all PPE requirements in place. 

We will keep you updated of any changes through the social media and website. 

Absolutely no experience or artistic background is necessary – we will guide and encourage you throughout each activity

IPSUM is fortunate to have a team of wonderful artists with many different skills who offer a wide programme of activities.

We run  Workshops in:

  • Drawing
  • Painting - in a variety of styles and media
  • Textiles
  • Printmaking
  • Clay work
  • Animation

Engaging in Arts and Crafts can be a creative way of expressing yourself whilst learning new skills.

You have the benefit of working with a diverse group of people, along with the opportunity to socialise and make friends and develop your communication skills.

We currently run workshops Monday to Friday with morning workshops at 10am to 12.30pm then afternoon sessions 1.30pm to 4pm.


We also have many exhibitions to showcase the arts and crafts created within the IPSUM Art Room.  Check out our prints for sale on etsy at
