Bow Road Studios

Our Bow Road studio site is currently our largest and most iconic studio space, made up of two large adjacent buildings which are workspaces to over 100 artists, located in the east London cultural hub a stone's throw away from our Nunnery Gallery. With a variety of self-contained spaces as well as semi-open place spaces shared by groups of artists it's an incredible space with a strong community atmosphere which has evolved organically in response to artists' changing needs. 

The studios cover a wide range of sizes and are suitable for a wide range of different practices. Each year we host a lively Open Studios event, renowned as the busiest and most exciting event in the arts calendar annually!
