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.
