Studios & Workshops

Primary offers a number of high quality, attractive and affordable artists’ studios and workshops, and is home to artists at all stages in their careers and working across all media. Spaces are secure and accessible 24/7, with most having excellent natural light and access to shared facilities. In addition to offering dedicated spaces for artists to work, Primary offers a vibrant creative community for peer support and collaboration. Residents also benefit from a diverse public programme, which includes residencies, public exhibitions and events with national and international artists.

Individual spaces have different characteristics and range in size from 10-90 m2. The cost of studio rental varies according to each space from £40-400 per month, which includes VAT and all services (heating, electricity and Wi-Fi). Spaces can be single occupancy or be shared by two or more artists, or by an artists’ group. Rent is paid monthly by direct debit, and a deposit of one months’ rent must be paid in advance.
