Fine Cell Work is a social enterprise that trains prisoners in creative needlework. The aim is to foster hope, discipline and self-esteem through learning key skills.
In prisons all across the UK, inmates are filling their hours embroidering highly-crafted cushions, bags, pictures and patchwork quilts. The work is of a superb quality as prisoners are taught and supported by volunteers from the Embroiderers and Quilters Guild. The prisoners are paid for their work, which is then sold to organizations such as the V&A, English Heritage, Tate Modern and the National Gallery.
