Pure Art & Animation Studios


Pure Studio offers support to over fifty artists from three sites across Stockport; Broadstone Mill, Vernon Park and our latest addition The Grey Horse, the home of our animation studio.

Pure Studio Broadstone opened in 2012, offering a professional facility dedicated exclusively to the arts to people with a learning disability in the Stockport and South Manchester area. The studio is based in The Galleries, an established creative community of Artists and Makers found in Broadstone Mill, Reddish. As the studio is open to the public, members are able to sell their artwork through our shop. Specialisms include painting, drawing, sculpture and collage offered through collaborative projects and independent practice.


Vernon Studio opened in 2015. Housed in Vernon, a Victorian Villa in the historic Vernon Park, the studio is set in inspirational surroundings with views across the town. Opened in 1858, Vernon Park was known as “The People’s Park” a tradition we aspire to maintain through our gallery and workshops.

Opened in April 2017, The Grey Horse, based in Heaton Norris, Stockport offers both animation and fine art. Located near Wellington Road, making it easy to access via public transport from both Stockport and Manchester.
