Welcome

Second Floor Studios & Arts (SFSA) is a leading arts organisation that supports the development of visual and fine art practice and craft and designer making by providing:
• affordable studios, workshops and creative spaces
• supportive environment
• creative partnerships
• education and outreach
• exhibition programme
• advocacy

We currently have a membership of over 420 people, all at varying stages of their careers, ranging from recent graduates, emerging artists and makers to long established practitioners. Founded by Matthew Wood in 1997, SFSA was established as a direct response from personal struggles to find affordable studio space locally in South East London...
