Sprout Artists’ Creative Hub
10.30am - 1pm alternate Mondays (Term time only)

Upcoming dates for 2018

Mon 23rd April


Hub 1Hub 2Hub 3


If you normally work from home and feel you would like to be part of a local creative network - come and join the Sprout Artists’ Creative Hub. We are artists, makers, writers and photographers who meet around the table in Sprout Arts, 74 Moyser Road, SW16 6SQ.

The Hub provides an opportunity to get on with small scale “making” away from your home / studio and the opportunity to share in relaxed conversation, exchange of ideas, and group support. If you feel your creativity has been buried for a while then this could be a way to get started again. You don’t have to stay for the whole time either. It’s free so please drop in to check it out!

Sprout Out Art-Loans

Sprout Art’s aim is to support artists and encourage local people of all ages and backgrounds to engage in creative activities and appreciate original art.


The idea of starting an Art Loan initiative is simple, people who are members of Sprout will be able to borrow an original work of art for three months and pay nothing, the artwork would then be available to someone else.

The hope is that people who have never had original artwork in their homes will realise how wonderful it is and go on to become art enthusiasts and encourage their friends and neighbours too. Lending sessions take place quarterly at various local venues and will allow members to borrow one artwork for three months, free of charge. A selection of the artwork will also be on permanent display at Interior design specialists EA Wates.

About me:

Do you have a favourite poem? 


Pass on a Poem will be at Sprout Arts in Moyser Road bi-monthly on Friday 7-9pm.
As always, please choose a poem (not self-written) to read. If there is time, after an interval we'll read any further poems that people have brought, so bring a spare. Please let us know the title and author of your first poem a couple of days ahead so we can draw up an initial running order.

If you haven't come to a meeting but are thinking about it, there are usually about a dozen attendees and poems can be drawn from anywhere in the 500-odd years of English language poetry. We often discuss the readings, and the evening is always interesting and stimulating.

“We don’t read poems because, like bran flakes, they’re good for us; we read them because we love them – and if you haven’t found a poem you really love, keep looking and I am sure you will.” Erica Wagner
