- We are taking details for track and trace.

Art4Space are committed to keeping their carbon footprint to a minimum and are advocates for raising environmental awareness in the groups that we work with. Art4Space are members of the local Scrap Scheme and use junk modelling in art workshops. We use bio cleaner, recycle pots for containers and old clothes for cloths, our kiln is energy efficient, we use recycled and reused tiles wherever possible and we fuse reclaimed glass into our mosaics. Art4Space support local businesses and encourage localised volunteering.
