Second Home studio + Cafe is a not for profit organisation focused on making art more accessible. We are set up as a specific type of Limited Company known as a Community Interest Company (CIC for short!). This means we run our business with the interests of our community at heart. Any profit we make, is invested back into the business to purchase items such as art materials for classes and public use in the cafe.

expanding + empowering our creative community

At Second Home our mission is to empower and expand our creative community. We expand our creative community by welcoming people to make use of our free art materials on site, and by hosting classes which are financially accessible. We empower our existing creative community by providing opportunities through tuition, exhibitions, and retail. 

three years of community support 

Through tuition opportunities, exhibitions, and retail space, Second Home has generated over £42,000 in income to local artists. 

In the last three years, we've had the pleasure of hosting over 140 art classes, workshops and events. That's over 1,500 people exploring their creativity with us! 

We've also partnered with 11 other not for profit organisations to provide creative support.
