“SFSA exists to provide studios and creative workspaces at monthly rental prices that artists and crafts makers can afford.”

SFSA provides affordable non-residential studio spaces for visual artists, fine artists, craft makers and designer makers. Our studio rents are considerably lower than those charged for physically comparable studio or creative workshop
space available commercially.
Monthly studio rental prices range from £9 - £14 per sqft. per annum. The average monthly rent with SFSA is £200 pcm (£46.15 pw) for a 200 sqft. studio space. Monthly rental payments include: business rates, water charges, buildings
maintenance, buildings insurance, and site management costs. (Please note studio members are responsible for their own contents insurance and public liability) The only additional costs are individual electricity use charges and annual SFSA Membership Fee
(£90 +VAT from the 1st Aug 2015)
We offer yearly studio licence agreements and require a deposit of one month’s rent. Rents are paid monthly in advance by standing order. We require 3 month's notice to quit studio space licence agreement (If we have a new member wanting
to take your studio in good faith we are happy to negotiate an earlier leaving date).
Studios that become available are offered to artists on the register in the first instance. They are then offered on a first come, first served basis according to the date of application.
SFSA operate a 98-100% studio occupancy level. Studio spaces do come available and some studio members are looking to share. Please complete the studio enquiry form (feature box on each page) or email:
email@example.com for an available studio list.
