In Bristol Studio

In Bristol Studio

In Bristol Studio is an artist-led space particularly suitable for designer makers. We specialise in hosting space for the noisy, messy and vocationally creative. We are home to artist makers who work across multiple disciplines, whose practice cannot necessarily be defined by one term but who relish the opportunity to utilise a broad range of making processes in an open and exploratory environment.

We are passionate about collaborative working, skill sharing, participation in the arts and the consumption of tea.  We offer affordable studio space with shared access to professional tools and machinery along with business support, mentoring and opportunities to develop and expand creative practice.

Based in an 1830s Cotton Mill just off Feeder Road in Barton Hill, we offer fully equipped work space for woodwork, ceramics, print and textiles with a variety of sized studio units to rent from 60-100 sq-ft. Prices start from £27 per week all inclusive – to find out more visit –


Our equipment and facilities are available to use by all members. Full training is given and our machinery is professional grade. The general making areas provide plenty of space to spread out into for big projects and much of our space is flexible. We’ve sited two large workstations in front of our big windows so you can get maximum daylight whilst catching up on admin!
