Studio 306 Collective CIC is a group of local skilled arts & crafts professionals who have come together to form a Social Firm specialising in designing and producing high quality; Ceramics, Jewellery, Textiles and Screen Printed products.
The Studio offers a creative space for people who are recovering from mental illness. Working in this environment empowers them to rediscover forgotten skills, to develop new ones with increased confidence and motivation, leading to achievement and fulfilment.
Along side our members, disadvantaged individuals in our local community are able to volunteer within the Collective. As we are a not-for profit-organisation, all the money we make goes straight back into the collective. Currently, our products are stocked in independent shops and available on etsy at www.studioc306.com. All of the designing and making happens in our Studio on the third floor of Chocolate Factory 1; Wood Green, London.
Jewellery: Our jewellers work mainly in sterling silver and we only make a limited edition of each design. Our range is continually evolving.
Textiles: The textiles team work primarily with locally sourced materials producing lovely cushions, hats, scarves, aprons and pretty much anything you can make with material. They also work alongside screen- printing turning patterns designed in the studio into amazing fashion and home ware.
Screen-Printing: Every aspect of the screen-printing process takes place in our studio and the printers have produced a stunning range of greeting cards as well as limited edition prints/canvases. They also print designs on fabric for the textile team and ceramic transfers.
Ceramics: The ceramics team specialise in slip casting, producing a range of mugs and vases that carry the studios most popular designs. Along side this they produce a range of hand formed large bowls and thrown ware.
Studio 306 is very happy to take on bespoke commissioned work whether it is in one of our disciplines or across the spectrum.
