The studio is open to anyone living in North Tyneside who is experiencing mental health issues. Access to the studio is made by referral from your GP, Community Treatment Team or other healthcare professional by completing and signing our referral form.

Once we receive your completed referral, we will invite you to attend a short Induction session which provides you with an overview of the Studio‚Äôs Code of Conduct (set out by our Members) and a few health and safety guidelines. The induction is followed by our New Starter Intro Workshops to get you on your way and we encourage all new members to take part in this 4 week creative programme which enables you to learn skills in a range of different artforms, become confident in art making and supports individuals in the initial stages of getting to know the studio.
