Fine Cell Work is a social enterprise training prisoners in paid, skilled, creative needlework that encourages hope, discipline and self esteem, as well as giving prisoners confidence upon leaving prison and the financial means to stop offending. Prison stitchers spend an average of 20 hours per week doing embroidery in their cells, whilst the highest earners stitch for as long as 40 hours; their earnings from stitching nurtures a work ethic and a sense of independence. Fine Cell Work is done in 24 prisons with 450 prisoners each year and 97% of the stitchers are men. Prisoners earn 37% of each sale, whilst the rest is reinvested into training workshops, materials and Fine Cell Work’s development. Products in the past have sold internationally and to top interior designers such as William Yeoward and Nina Campbell, whilst works have also been commissioned by leading heritage organisations such as the Victoria & Albert Museum, the National Trust and English Heritage.
