Studio on the Square is a charity (operating under the umbrella of The Green Hub Trust).
The organisation offers a wide range of art classes, workshops, competitions, social groups, as well as mentoring programmes. We provide hands-on tailored tuition to assist students to realise their creative potential.
All programmes are structured and supportive, enabling students of all abilities to thrive and learn under the guidance of professional tutors.
Our studio is large, light, and spacious, allowing students to socially distance. In 2022, our class sizes will be limited to six - eight participants. Mentoring classes have a limit of four participants.
All our staff are double vaccinated, and each working space is equipped with hand sanitiser, and face masks.
All eligible participants must be double vaccinated for Covid 19. You may email a copy of your certificate or produce this at the time of enrolment.
