 New stretch target

This extra funding would allow us to expand our community offering to bring you even more loveliness to the city. 

Big news! Second Home Studio + Cafe and Breathing Space Studio are joining forces to bring you the most welcoming, chill space in the heart of the city centre.

Second Home Studio + Cafe are a Community Interest Company (CIC) which means we make out business decisions based on what we believe to be beneficial to the community, and any profit we make is invested back in the business to pay for things like new art materials for everyone to use. Our mission is to empower and expand the creative community. We do this by providing free to use art materials on site for everyone to use, and by hosting art classes at fair rates. We support the existing creative community by providing opportunities through retail, exhibition and tuition opportunities.

Over the last three years we’ve generated over £42,000 in income to local artists. We've hosted over 400 classes, with around 1,500 participants, and we've partnered with 11 other not for profit organisations to provide creative support. 

With this larger space, we hope to generate more money from the cafe to fund even bigger projects, host more people in classes and have an even larger array of materials. We'll even have space for a Day Studio which will have a Mac with the full range of Adobe software, generously provided by the good folks at Fine Day Studio. We'll have more opportunities to connect as a community through night time events such as open mic nights, poetry readings and anything else you can think of!

Breathing Space Studio is a community focused wellness studio, bringing people together over a shared love of spirituality and movement. We currently host 8 different yoga teachers all sharing their practice in their own unique way. We also host various classes including sound healing, pilates, mindset coaching, women’s circles, parent and baby sessions. We’re really proud to have created a little community through events such as book club and business blethers and hope to keep this vibe going with the new space!

With your contributions, both Laura and Kirsty will be able to create the spaces that mean so much to so many. The money generated from this crowdfunder will go towards kitting out our new spaces, making them comfortable and cosy for you to enjoy very soon.

We really appreciate each and every contribution. If you can’t contribute right now, no stress. We also have options to volunteer your time too. Just email us at [email protected]
