It was a wonderful day in a beautiful setting. Having a chance to try copper enamelling was great and quite a unique activity. I liked the easy going structure and the lunch was phenomenal. Thank you!
It was a brilliant day - really well, run combining purpose and fun in a very relaxed and extremely comfortable environment. Challenging enough to be interesting but no stressful pressure. Excellent for interacting with colleagues off base.
"All of The Making It Out team members were so humbly skilled, personable, and patient, especially with such a large group. We had a fantastic day and would highly recommend this incredible organisation.”

Koestler Arts is a fantastic charity who work to enable the arts across the criminal justice system.
Their day with Making it Out was orchestrated by Sean, one of our staff who had previously volunteered with Koestler.
They spent the day making enamelled jewellery and painting some individual artworks for display in their office.
