The Art House provides studios and programmes offering time, space and support for artists and associates to progress their creative, critical practice and professional careers.  
Prices start from £60 per month (including utilities).

The Art House studios are home to over 50 artists, makers and creative businesses at all stages of their careers, working across all media. Available as individual and shared spaces, ranging from 9 to 50 square metres studios are secure and accessible 24/7. Most have excellent natural light and all artists have access to kitchen facilities, free wi-fi, and The Art House, Print Studio and Laser Cutter. Some studios have additional facilities such as extractor fans, three-phase, sinks and extra-large doors.

Studios are subsidised, making them accessible to artists who would otherwise find it difficult to afford working space. A commercial rate is applicable to creative businesses.

In 2015 The Art House extended into the beautifully refurbished Grade II Listed Carnegie Library. The redevelopment added more new studios, taking the total to 51. In addition to offering quiet places to work, The Art House facilitates a vibrant creative environment of peer support and collaboration, with a rolling programme of events and residencies that foster national and international connections with artists, curators and sector professionals.

Studio spaces are awarded following an application which is assessed by the studio selection panel. This panel is made up of our Chief Executive/Artistic Director, Programme Producer and other members of the team.

We are in the process of reviewing our studio application process. If you’re interested in having a studio space at The Art House then please drop us an email in the first instance and we’ll provide you with the most up to date application form.
