  • It's all go with the Aardvarks at the moment with our shiney new branch now open in Chesters cultural quarter near the Cathedral and Storyhouse and our Inventors Asylum team out and about on the national show circuit. With so much going on in both Chester and nationally have decided to focus all our efforts on one branch and are handing over the reigns in Teignmouth. This will give our team the chance to focus on building on the already successful education programme and develop our schools links. Launching soon we will have resources for teaching at KS2/3/4 and the opportunity for schools to exhibit in the new year. We will be adding to our current classes with a stronger daytime schedule and more one to one opportunities. Our team have also already been booked for shows and talks every month until October 2018 from Glasgow to Exeter and many places in between! To book our team drop us an email at and let us know what you want to do.

  • Our Inventors Asylum team can make all sorts of amazing things for you - we can laser cut, 3d print, embroider, create screen print screens, vinyl cut and more... all to your specific requirements and we can even post it out to you afterwards. Let us do the hard work and you can just enjoy the results. You can also now book all our courses online through the inventors asylum website and buy all our kits and more....

  • In September we have our Annual Aardvark Open Exhibition in Chester. We welcome entries from Artists working in all media and it does not matter if you are a professional or if this is your first go at exhibiting. Our goal is always to hang every piece that is entered and we have never failed to date! We have a seperate category for Artists under 18 years old.
