Welcome to the website of Hive. We are a community arts organisation with a 30 year track record of delivering arts and crafts activities from our base in Shipley, and across Bradford District. We firmly believe that creativity can contribute to health and well-being and community regeneration.
In our unique non-traditional learning environment, with access to all areas of visual arts & crafts, we provide opportunities for personal development through courses and a creative space.

This course will enable students to explore different printmaking techniques that are simple and easy to carry out at home without the use of expensive materials or a printing press. Students will share ideas and gain inspiration from each other.
Join us and improve wellbeing. Learn new skills, connect with nature, be active and create something fantastic for the environment. Over 10 weeks we will design and build a wildlife hotel at Northcliffe woods in Shipley using natural materials and including ceramic and wood crafted elements. Sessions will take place at Hive and Northcliffe woods on Fridays.The sessions are part of the Ecotherapy project here at Hive. It's aim is to improve wellbeing through the use of creativity and outdoor space and is currently run by Jane McDonald.
