£155 per month for 1st year, minimum opening hours Tue-Sat 10am – 4pm (plus various other events)

Frome’s thriving art centre has a variety of studios which are rented to artists/makers. Studio 1 & 2, situated between the Black Swan Café and Round Tower will be available from March 2019.

The aims of the studios are to ‘Make, Display and Sell’. Their primary function is making, not ‘just’ a shop (though of course it’s a fantastic opportunity to sell directly to the public).

It’s a partnership between the arts centre and central to our ethos that we support new businesses and help them thrive and develop by providing space and opportunity at a low monthly cost. The lease contract is offered for three years, with a break clause after six months to review both sides are happy. The rent for the first year is £155 per calendar month, rising by £25 for the next two years. Studios are required to be open Tue to Sat 10am to 4pm, Market Sundays and Preview Evenings (approx 6-8 per year). Would suit a creative individual or 2-3 people together.

Spread the word, these chances don’t come up often!
