Creative Café (Drop In Studios)

The drop in studios aka Creative Café is a weekly (Fridays) opportunity to work and create in a studio setting without needing a monthly contract.

There’ll be the chance to hire and use equipment, work on your own projects, and access a friendly community of creatives! 

All abilities are welcome in this safe space. Whether you are looking to improve your technique or learn something new, come have a chat with one of our experienced facilitators who will be on hand to guide you through the equipment use and talk with you about your work.

At Aire Place Studios we believe in removing barriers to being creative; we will never turn anyone away from our community due to lack of funds. We are passionate about opening the exploration of creative passions and ideas to everyone.

As a community enterprise we need to make sure we can keep the space going, to invest in more opportunities, equipment and projects . To use the Drop-in Studio sessions the prices are as follows:

FREE – With APS membership (which is £45 a year)

£6 – If you just want to drop in, use our creative library, access free WIFI, as well as creative conversation and community.

Hire – You will need an APS membership to hire tools/equipment. Prices to hire will vary, most tools will require you to take part in an induction or take part in one of our workshops prior being able to hire out.
