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. 

Sew a garment, screen print, paint, sit and knit and more! Whatever your craft, we'd love to have you join us in the studio.

Join us in the studio, open from 10-4 Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Monday and Tuesday evenings 5 -8:30 pm, and create as much as you like. Please allow yourself adequate time to get set up and work on your projects and enough time to pack up by closing time. The latest arrival time is two hours before closing time.
