Studio Space for Artists and Makers
Our studios for artists are intended to support visual and applied artists and makers. We operate a registration list system and due to a very high level of demand it is inevitable that you will have to wait for space.
To register for space with us, we ask that you provide the following:
- A completed application form (see downloads section)
- 6-8 images of your most recent work
- An up to date CV
- A statement about your practice.
- Send all this information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Once a studio space becomes available, we will email the registration list accordingly and then arrange viewings with the studio rep for that building. Studio allocations are mainly based on your need so we take into account the following when making a decision to let a space:
- The nature of your practice
- The size of space that you need to make your work (ie. we would rather let a 1,000 sq ft space to an artist who makes large scale sculptural work as opposed to letting it to 4-5 artists/makers that create smaller works.)
- Length of time you have been waiting for space
- Establishing a healthy balance of different practices within our studio building
We offer a month to month lease to allow maximum flexibility for artists. Rates per sq ft vary from building to building but our average studio rent is around £150 inclusive of bills and rates.
Each studio will have one lease holder. You may decide to share your studio space with another artist and that is fine - studio shares are often chosen by the lease holder. However, we can also help out by contacting the rest of the registration list to find a suitable share for you.
We also offer fixed term lease breaks to allow you to take a break from your practice, go on residency etc. These run for a minimum of six months and a maximum of one year and are arranged via the Wasps office.
Office Space for Creative Industries and Social Enterprises
We provide creative industry and business spaces at South Block, Glasgow. Rents start from as little as £350 per month excluding service charge. Lease terms are from 12 months to 15 years.
For Charities & Social Enterprises Rents start from £350 per month inclusive of service charge. Leases from one to three years will be offered. Each party will be responsible for their own legal costs, with the ingoing tenant being responsible for stamp duty, registration & extract copies.
To register your interest in creative office/social enterprise space and to check availability, please contact our studios administrator Lois Green.
We are keen to expand our creative office and social enterprise provision within our network, in new developments in Inverness and Perth. Both of these projects are underway.
Cultural Office Space
We provide cultural office space for organisations working in visual arts, music, theatre and dance and other cultural activities at The Briggait in Glasgow.
Most cultural office spaces are small and would suit teams that have 2-3 employees max. Rents range from between £12 - 14 per sq ft. Leases are offered on a month to month basis. Cultural office rents are inclusive of heating and lighting.
If you are interested in registering your interest for cultural office space and to check availability, please email our studios administrator Lois Green.
