Open Plan Studios
The open plan shared space is a new concept for us but one which we wanted to adopt as a means to provide a more flexible and more affordable option for artists who are either on a limited budget or require only limited use.
The open space is approx. 500 sq ft, so plenty big enough to accommodate multiple artists working at the same time. The open plan space has a mixture of desks, chairs, stools, easels and some basic tools and equipment for shared use. It also has an adjoining wash-room with two sinks and a storage cupboard for each artist to store their tools and materials. There is also an option for hiring additional secure storage cupboards for a minimal fee.
It’s set in a ‘loft’ style mezzanine area with overhead roof lights so plenty of natural light and feels spacious and bright. It also doubles up as our workshop and event space. It’s much more affordable at £250 per month and we can offer shorter term rentals. It’s a great way to meet and mingle with other artists and you will have access to all the other amenities same as those with the individual studios.
