Open: Monday to Friday 9am – 7pm. Saturdays 9am – 6pm. Sundays 9:30 – 4pm
(Evening work sessions are available eg until 9pm, on evening class nights, and on request).
Currently 45 local artists share the 32 rented studios, which vary in size and character from raw workshops to tidy office studios, and the seven co-working deskspaces on the 1st Floor (ten if the three double-desks are occupied separately).
By December 2019 we had converted the ex-Performance Space on the Basement level into two more studios, with a third added by March 2020, and completed a fourth studio conversion on that level for occupation from September 2020 (all are taken). All workspaces are offered at affordable rates, subsidised in part by a range of facilities and additional activities provided by the company such as the Gallery Kitchen Café, Artisan Shop, exhibitions (in Upper or Lower Galleries), with various events and art/craft courses (often delivered by resident artists).
Creek provides a sense of community, opportunity, and purpose, as catalysts for professional development in the arts, where exchanged skills, ideas, resources, contacts and experience can support collaboration or independence, and provide promotion when needed. Potential advantages such as commission leads, economies of scale, or sales and social network support, can maximise creative productivity. At the core is a friendly workplace for talented, but often isolated or undiscovered practitioners, which has built up organically over several years to become a valuable asset of the town, by stimulating its occupants, local artists, the local economy, and visiting public alike.

May 2021 update… All our studios and deskspaces are taken once again (including the four new studios!), as the two shares available on the Top Floor have just been snapped up. If you are interested in future vacancies check out the recently refreshed Virtual Tour, and select an area from the pop-out Menu bubble (top left). You can also view the locations of all our studios and other spaces via the soon-to-be-updated (2018) Floor Plans on the Room Hire page.
