Resident maker bays are available for longer-term lease at discounted rates. Residency suits makers who need a dedicated base to work from, and/or have their own, skill-specific machinery that is in use most days, makers who run regular workshops for small groups or those best suited to an office environment.


We offer 3 types of residency space, on a pay-per-month basis:


Maker Bays

On the workshop floor, with ground-level access and dedicated storage space.


Craft Bays

Situated on the first floor, the Craft Room is a co-working space of individual stations around a central cutting table. It suits makers who require occasional machine access.and is home to props makers, designers and textile workers.



Private studios of various sizes suit makers or creatives better suited to a private or office environment.

Please note, all our studios are currently leased.  If you have been considering a studio space and this news is disappointing, why not arrange a tour in the meantime?  Meet the team, discuss your requirements and we may have a short to medium-term solution!

Resident makers can access the workshop 24/7 and enjoy the stability of a long-term, dedicated workspace they can make their own.
