Artist opportunities

Develop professionally

Our Royal Albert Wharf studios are part of a growing cultural hub with an exciting programme of events. Here, artists and creatives run public workshops, exhibitions, film screenings, classes and much more. We also give artists plenty of opportunities to develop professionally, through workshops, training sessions, peer crits, panel discussions and the sale of your art through Own Art.
