We are thrilled to announce that, at last, we are launching Attenborough Arts at Home, a new way to learn at home.
We believe that everyone has a creative side – and yes, that includes you too. Whether you’re a complete beginner or regular maker wanting to try out something new, our art and crafts kits are designed to help people of all ages and abilities to take the next step on their artistic journey.
After receiving support from ACE and DCMS, Alistair Burns, Attenborough Arts Centre’s customer relationship manager, has been working tirelessly for months, filming video art classes with some of our expert tutors, supported by trained filmographer and directors, to build the best possible selection of art boxes and videos that get delivered straight to your door.
Our tutors are all independent, practising artists with decades of combined wisdom and industry experience. They’re keen to support emerging artists and we’ve been lucky to have many of them teach right here at Attenborough Arts Centre. Whether our tutors are local East Midlands makers or talented creators from up and down the UK, we’re proud to help them go further in their exciting artistic careers.
We’re always looking to minimise any impact that our art tools and materials could have on the environment. That’s why we only send you containers that are reusable, made from glass, bamboo or paper. Our disposable gloves are all fully biodegradable, our boxes are fully sustainable, while our Jesmonite resin bottle, the only item we’ll send you that’s made from plastic (rPET), uses 30% recycled material and is fully recyclable too!
How it works
No classroom, pressure or expectations. Just the joy of creating something from scratch, all from the comfort of your own home. Simply unbox and enjoy.

Explore our range of art and crafts kits; from clay candlestick making and watercolour painting to linocut printing and gilded letter signwriting – which one will you try first?

We dispatch your box on the Monday. Delivered straight to your door, your kit contains all the materials you need to start your project, such as paintbrushes, containers, stencils and more.
