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.

The Fabric of Bradford is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and explores community responses to local textile dyeing heritage. The project is based around the city and at Hive, where participants have created a traditional dye plant garden. We are working with Bradford Community Environment Project, The Colour Experience and Bradford Textile Archive as partners. A drop-in gardening and textiles session runs at Hive every Thursday morning from 10-12. Hive members and non-members are welcome to attend and the sessions are free.
