If you live in North Tyneside, you can be referred to access the studio by getting in touch with your GP, Community Mental Health Team, or other mental health professional and asking them to fill out our online referral form on this website. Once we receive your completed referral, you are invited to book a short induction session, which is followed by our New Starter Programme. We encourage all new members to take part in this 4 week course where you can try a range of different artforms and build your confidence in attending the studio, and getting to know our community.
