“The low-carbon space to work, create, perform, relax, teach and play”
Halton Mill is a collaborative working community, where supporting each other, sharing facilities, knowledge and ideas are central to our ethos.
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, workbenches, tools, a kiln and potters wheel and clay, jewellery benches and much more. It is divided into a woodwork/ pottery maker-space 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.
In 2016 we hosted MillFest, our first Music Festival, and we host regular arts and crafts fairs/open studios. We have prepared a guide for marketing events at the Mill which you can find here.
