Studio space available - Suitable for a textile maker

We are offering a small studio space for a textile maker in our studios in Easton, Bristol. This space would suit a recent graduate or small start up textile business. 

The space is available at no cost, but would be in exchange for some work for our company at 15 hours per month. This will be a combination of practical and admin based jobs as required and would be arranged at a mutually beneficial time. 

The ideal person needs to have impeccable machine sewing skills, excellent hand sewing skills, excellent attention to detail and generally good all round making skills. Good basic admin skills would be a bonus.

The space offered is a desk space (with desk and chair included), small storage area, and shelves.  This would be for your personal use. There is also opportunity to spread out when other areas of the studios aren’t being used, including use of a large pattern cutting table. 

Access is 24 hours, 7 days a week. 

This space would be initially offered for 3 months with a view to a potential extension.

Please note this space will not suit someone with a very messy artistic practice. 

To apply, please email us a brief covering letter telling us a bit about yourself, and make sure you cover the following:

What do you use the space for (i.e your practice)

How much you anticipate using it (roughly how many hours per week)

When you plan to use the space (evening, daytimes, weekends etc)

Why you would like this space

A relevant CV

Please send to

Deadline for applications is Monday 7 November 2016. 

We will short list makers after this date, and invite you to come in to the studio to meet us, and so we can find out a little more about you, and you can see the space.

Memory of space – Space of Memory

Fri, 25/11/2016 - Wed, 30/11/2016

Students from the Drawing and Print BA programme at UWE present an exhibition of work in response to the idea, ‘Memory of Space – Space of Memory’.
The students were invited to respond to the title by Jan-Phillip Fruhsorge, an international curator based in Berlin, and Director of Fruehsorge Contemporary Drawing Gallery. Students and alumni have produced work in a range of media, and with a range of responses to the provocation. Some theoretically, some emotionally some literally.

BA Drawing and Print is a practice-based course, based at Arnolfini, UWE’s City Campus. Students work across the expanded fields of drawing and print.

Private View: Thursday 24 November, 6 - 9pm
Open daily: 12 - 6pm
