Learners at HMP Huntercombe have had the opportunity to design the new labels for a craft brewery.
Tap Social Movement provides training and employment to people in custody and those who have been released, and has worked with learners and staff at HMP Huntercombe for several years.
Art tutor at HMP Huntercombe Julia Ogborne said: “We have been thrilled for the opportunity to work with Tap Social Movement and to create a range of label designs for their beers. The art students at HMP Huntercombe have embraced the opportunity to work on these labels and even name one of the beers. As their tutor I am immensely proud of the way that they have stepped up to this challenge and are able to appreciate the role that art can play in the world of employment.”
Showing off the new designs on Instagram, the team at Tap Social Movement said: “We’ve worked with the Art Department at HMP Huntercombe for a couple years now, visiting the prison to meet the men creating the designs and sharing the finished products with them. We’re still blown away by the pieces the artists come up with.”

The beautiful artwork behind each of these designs was custom made for us by the incredibly talented artists serving sentences at HMP Huntercombe. We’ve worked with this Art Department (and their wonderfully supportive instructors) for a couple years now, visiting the prison to meet the men creating the designs and sharing the finished products with them. We’re still blown away by the pieces the artists come up with, many of which you’ll be able to see on the canvases that’ll decorate the White House pub walls. Lots more to come – keep your eyes peeled! 🎨
