Since 1994, Bow Arts have nurtured London’s diverse creativity and talent – creating opportunities to work, learn and enjoy affordable, lifelong access to the arts.
What we do
Our studios connect artists with local communities, where they can meet other creatives and develop professionally. We give communities greater access to and interaction with the arts, through our learning programme, workshops, exhibitions and events.
Catford Dek 14a
A beautiful, semi-open plan studio at Catford Dek on the 4th floor of the Old Town Hall building, Catford. This studio would be well suited to an artist with a non-messy practice or a designer.
Magnolia House, situated next to our Three Waters studio location, will soon be open for creative businesses looking for studio/work space! Magnolia House has 7 larger affordable creative workspaces ideal for those practices that require that additional space.
