Two Studios Left

We have an exciting group of artists and writers about to take tenancy of the studios. There are still two small studios left, so if you are interested please apply by downloading the form from this page.

If you missed out on a studio you can still apply to be a Day Member. This allows you access to all the discussion events, and you can hire either of the project spaces as and when you need them, for up to 3 days at a time.

Open Day

We are holding an open day on 14th September, at which point all the studios and project spaces will be viewable. We will be on hand to answer any questions. Studios are available by application from the 14th September, using an email application form on this website. The deadline will be noon on Thursday 25th September, and we hope to allocate spaces by the end of that week, with occupancy beginning in October.

Hope to see you at the open day!
