We are a centre for creative and wellbeing activities.
Creative activities and spaces at Halton Mill
Many artists and craftspeople work at Halton Mill. We have a shared artists studio, with spaces for six individual artists, as well as many artists and creatives with their own individual spaces. We also have a gallery space for exhibitions which showcases our own, and other local artists. There are weekly art classes and a range of one off workshops and events.
We host Lunelab, a well equipped community maker and crafts space. It contains lathes, saws, work benches, tools, a kiln and potters wheel and clay, jewellery benches and much more. It is divided into a woodwork/ pottery makerspace and an arts and crafts teaching space, which is used for a variety of courses. Individuals can join Lunelab for just £10 a month, which gives 24/7 access and use of a locker.
We also have a flexible performance and rehearsal space, which is used by many performers for one off events. In 2016 we hosted Mill Fest, our first Music Festival, and we host regular arts and crafts fairs/open studios. We have a grant to support the development of music events at the Mill which means we can offer subsidised venue hire for free events, and provide free support for publicising music events.
Wellbeing activities and spaces at Halton Mill
We have three beautiful wellbeing spaces.
The River Room is a large, beautiful retreat space looking out on the river, the seminar room works well for smaller, more intimate classes and courses and Pura Vida is a holistic health and beauty space.
We attract many teachers and healers to run courses or sessions at the Mill, with a particular focus on yoga. There are also courses in tai chi, movement meditation, mindfulness, non violent communication, natural nutrition, gong healing, dance and more.
