The Creative Space

Hire The Creative Space, a flexible area found between the Gallery Space and the letterpress studio.

If you’re looking for an inspirational place to work, it’s perfect for informal meetings, talks, small parties (including children’s parties), creative activities and even hot-desking.

The space is available to hire on an hourly or daily basis, Wi-Fi and all other bills are included, and there are kitchen and WC facilities at your disposal. In the summer months, it may be possible to spill out onto the courtyard to the rear of the studio.

To fully appreciate the space and the flexibility that we offer, we recommend a visit.
