Welcome to The Purbeck Workshop

Here's a little bit about what we do in The Purbeck Workshop...


We’re sorry that you have found the need to search for cancer support groups, but here’s a little bit about what we do in the Purbeck Workshop.    


We are a registered charity number 1161110, dedicated to providing creative escapes to those touched by cancer within the Dorset area. 


We know only too well that a cancer diagnoses can turn your world  upside down - from the endless medical appointments and treatments, as well as changes to your lifestyle, working capacity and mobility.  Your family members and friends will also be affected.  

We can help! We can provide you with the creative space in a relaxing and supportive environment where you can participate in our free workshops and events and meet people who have been on the same journey as you.  We aim to help take your mind off your worries and fears...just for a few hours!  


For us, it's not about you mastering new craft skills or even the end product.  It's about you taking some time out for a few hours, having fun and engaging with your creative self - you may even discover some new hidden talents and skills.

So whether you've had a recent or previous diagnoses or you know people currently touched by cancer, our door is open, you're all very welcome to attend. We are located a short distance from Wool train station, we also have off-street parking and disability accessible parking and toilet facilities. 

BBC Spotlight recently spent a morning with us in the Workshop in 2018, view the short programme they made about us below or on Vimeo.  


We look forward to welcoming you to The Purbeck Workshop.
