Studio Space at the English Bridge Workshop


A major challenge for any artist or craftsperson is to find a suitable studio space. The ideal combination of size, cost, location and flexibility can be very difficult to find.


The EBW provides seven such spaces, currently occupied by artists and craftspeople ranging from professional to early career. Their work covers a wide range of skills, including stained glass, painting, printmaking, photography, architecture, textiles, illustration and mosaic, . You can read more about each studio occupant below.


As well as very reasonable rates and a central location, the EBW offers facilities including broadband, central heating and car parking.


For enquiries about space at the EBW please leave a message on 01743 243283, email us or use the contact form.  If you wish to contact the artists, please contact them direct.
