Part of HCA, 1A Arts is a community arts provider delivering activities primarily for children and young people, but with ambitions to work with a much broader range of people.  We value a participatory approach to community arts production and seek to include as wide a range of beneficiaries as possible. 

Digital Media Projects

Our Digital Media Project offers young people opportunities to experiment with new technologies and digital art forms from glitch art and digital comics, illustration to film making and sound installations.  We hold a weekly Media Arts Club, deliver activities in community settings and partner with local cultural institutions such as the John Soane’s Museum to improve young people’s digital arts skills and make a huge difference to their confidence and aspiration.

Our Pottery sessions run every week during term time with over 200 classes a year. Children and adults have less and less chance to be creative and learn in different ways. A space like our pottery studio - with professional teaching, access to specialist tools and equipment and our own kiln, facilitates people's creativity and learning.

Looking for a unique birthday party idea? Alongside our regular classes, our pottery studio can be hired privately for groups of up to 12 adults or children. Please contact us to find out more.
