/ About

Craftory is a non-profit collective who contribute their skills for the benefit of the community. Bringing disused spaces back to life by sharing our skills in painting, crafting, repairing and more.

Everything started from what used to be the social club for the Tate & Lyle Sugar factory employees in 80s. The building has been abandoned for 15 years, hence in derelict conditions when found. After introducing ourselves to the local community, collecting over 100 signatures of support for the project we have started renovation works to transform the building into usable workshop spaces accessible for the public.

When bringing spaces back to life we always keep in mind the Craftory threefold vision of…

Community,
Sustainability
& Creativity.
