The Hive JQ

The Hive is a community hub for Birmingham in an historic building, with an award-winning organic café and bakery, craft workshops, exhibitions and event spaces.

We run an enterprise project in collaboration with ATHAC CIC called Crafting for All. Our monthly sessions provide an opportunity for people with a learning disability or specific learning need to gain practical enterprise and traditional crafting skills. By the end of the project the makers will have produced quality hand-made items to sell at a local craft market.
COVID has got in the way of this project, but not stopped it! We are sending craft kits to our group to do at home. We'll resume the craft workshops and skills development with makers when it is safe to do so. Just look at all the wonderful things people are making!
