Studio Spaces for Hire

Three studio spaces have become available across our two buildings in Sunniside, Sunderland.

Studio 1, Nile Street
Available immediately for £95pcm this studio is located in the 'hot-shop' at Nile Street. Adjacent to the glass-blowing workshop the studio has half-height walls on two sides, and is therefore more open than some of our other studios. Our building manager and glass-maker occupies the adjoining studio, and the building's toilet and kitchen facilities are located in this part of the building too.

It may be possible to increase the wall height and add a door to the studio, this should be discussed upon viewing the space.

Studio 7, Nile Street
Available from June 2017 for £50pcm this studio is located with the majority of the other artists studios and is next to the Nile Street entrance. This space has a shared access with the adjoining studio space and is ideal for a part-time/spare time artist or hobbyist. There's enough room to accomodate a work desk and shelving can be hung on the three walls surrounding the space.

Nile Street is a single level building which was converted from a car garage into 'messy' artist spaces. It can get cold in the winter so most of our occupants supply their own plug-in heaters. All studios are open to encourage a community feel between artists, which was part of the ethos when the studios were built.

Studio 5, Villiers Street
Available from June 2017 for £125pcm this studio is on the first floor of a grade 2 listed building. With large windows providing lots of natural light this is a self-containted, carpeted studio.

Villers Street studios are all situated on the first floor of a grade 2 listed building. As such there is no lift access. These studios are more 'office-like', with each studio being completely self contained. There are male and female toilets and a communal kitchen. 

Our terms for studio hire stipulate the payment of the first and final month's hire fee at the start of the agreement. Monthly hire can then be paid on a monthly or quarterly basis by standing order.
