More than just studio space

As well as having a professional space to work from, our creative ventures have access to the knowledge and networks of our partners and supporters, as well as the opportunity to earn income from selling their work from their studios.

Our studios

Our studios range from 18 square metres to 24 square metres. They can be used between 7 am and 11 pm, seven days a week. Prices range from £161 – £215 per month for a new-start business to £242 – £322 for a developing business. Studios can be shared by two creative ventures. All studios come with a small fixed bench area, a sink with hot and cold running water, lighting, heating and internet / telephone points. Utilities are included with electricity subject to a fair usage policy.

Our creative ventures will be expected to maximise opportunities for growth and development during their time at the Hotwalls Studios. Studios are available to rent on six month licences. All our studios are designed to be ‘easy-in / easy-out’ spaces with only one month’s notice required to end your licence.
