Want to get your craft on but don't have the space or facilities at home? Or maybe you are studying art at school or Uni and would like the space and facilities to work on your projects? Students receive a discount, just show your student ID on arrival. 


Sew a garment, work on your clay hand building skills or practice with the pottery wheel, screen print, paint, sit and knit and more! Whatever your craft we'd love to have you join us in the studio.
