Covid and Flu Notice:

Where is you studio?

My studio is a part of the Swan Street Artist Studio complex. We are on Level 1 of 550 Swan Street Richmond. Its a contemporary art space run by Professional Artists, you’ll love having your workshop in this unique first floor warehouse.

Car parks are surprisingly easy to find around our studios. We are on the intersection of Swan Street, and Bendigo Street, Richmond.

You can often park right outside – fortunately we are at the quiet end of Swan Street. But remember the parking here is 2 hours so we’ll get you to set your alarm and make sure we all move our cars at the 2 hour point. Remember there are Clearways in Swan Street, Richmond.

According to Google, there’s a 6-minute walk from Burnley Railway Station to 550 Swan Street (its 450 metres away). Tram 70 stops a few metres from our front door.

My studio is up an old fashioned staircase so you need to be able to safely climb them to get here.

Private Workshops?

I run loads of private workshops.  Don’t be shy, bring your family and friends and have the studio to yourselves!  It’ll be so much fun.  Its a great catch up venue for you all and a fabulous way to create memories together.

If you don’t see a time and date that suits you here please email me and we will add a new date that suits you.   I am always happy to add other dates or create a private workshop for you and your friends, if that suits you better.   There is space here for a larger group of people to come to this workshop.   Just let me know.

Our new studio is a creative, fun, safe, friendly and stimulating environment.  You’ll love this workshop!
