Fine Cell Work is a charity and social enterprise which trains prisoners in creative, high-quality needlework as a means of rehabilitation. Join their beginners workshop to learn how to make a zippered cushion and discover the therapeutic power of stitch.

Through teaching highly skilled embroidery, needlepoint and quilting, Fine Cell Work enables prisoners to build fulfilling and crime-free lives. Their aim is to allow prisoners to finish their sentences with work skills, money earned and saved, and the self-belief to not reoffend. Prisoners are taught by experienced volunteers and staff to work in their cells and in prison workshops.

Fine Cell Work also guides them towards training and support on release. This fun, interactive workshop gives you a taster of the training that apprentices receive, teaching you how to make your very own zipped cushion which is yours to keep at the end of the session. Refreshments are provided throughout the day. This workshop is perfect for beginners so come along, have fun and learn a new skill!
