Fran Britten
The Purpose of Shute Farm Studio is to enable the less able, together with the able bodied, not only the opportunity, but the accessibility to be creative and to explore the arts in as many forms as possible.
Our logo, the Koru, is a new fern frond known in Maori as a Koru, which represents new life.
Shute Farm Studio reinvests all its profit into the promotion of Art & Education.
