There are 20 studios at Fire Station Creative which have been let out to painters, graphic designers, jewellers, illustrators, textile designers, 

uphosterers, print makers and photographers.

The Fire Station Creatives form the heart of this creative hub. Our ambition is to support them and add volume to their collective voice. 

The studios are normally closed to the public - with visits by invitaiton only. 

The email addresses and website links of our makers are displayed in the cafe, so if you would like to discuss a commission or have a look at recent work just get in touch with artist directly. 


Twice a year, the artists open their studios to the public for a weekend so you can come in, have a browse around, meet the makers and even buy an art work if the mood takes you. Sign up to our mailing list to make sure you find out when the studios are open (link on bottom of page).



WE ARE ALWAYS LOOKING FOR NEW PEOPLE TO JOIN OUR CREATIVE COMMUNITY AND STUDIO SPACES BECOME AVAILABLE REGULARLY. GET IN TOUCH IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO JOIN US.  PLEASE COMPLETE THE APPLICATION FORM BELOW AND SEND TO
