YOUR QUESTIONS ANSWERED...
I am not a painter, can i still join wimbledon art studios?
You certainly can! We have a range of artists, makers and designers who specialise in a variety of disciplines. These include; illustration, photography, millinery, ceramics, fashion and lots more.
How much does a studio cost?
The cost of a studio is based on several factors such as; size, location, natural light and amenities. The prices starts from £146 per month for an individual studio or £130 per month for a shared studio. Please be aware that all studio prices are subject to contract.
There is also an annual membership fee of £35 and your electricity cards, which you buy from us in the office for your own pre-paid meter. The amount of electricity you use will vary depending on the type of work you do, so we advise you keep an eye on your meter in the first few weeks - but don't panic there's an emergency top up option too.
CAN I TAKE PART IN THE WIMBLEDON ART FAIR?
Yes! We encourage all our resident artists to take part in the show, as it's a great platform to showcase your work to an audience of over 4000 people, including interior designers and galleries.
I have to work during the week, can i still access my studio at the weekends?
You can access your studio 24/7, 365 days a year. Many of our artists work full time and visit their studio in the evenings or at weekends.
Will there be opportunities to meet the other artists?
There's plenty of opportunities for you to meet the rest of the community. We host professional development workshops for our artists, which is a great time to meet your neighbours. Plus we hold monthly socials and a variety of events throughout the year, such as the summer picnic and Christmas party. You can also find many of the artists in the Common Room enjoying their lunch between 1pm - 2pm.
Should I get insurance for my studio?
We strongly advise our artists to take out personal insurance on the contents of their studio, especially those who are working with expensive equipment.
I have a dog, can i bring her?
We love pets at Wimbledon Art Studios and they are most welcome. All we ask is that they respect the neighbours (especially other four legged ones) and don't make a mess.
