Yorkshire Artspace

Yorkshire Artspace provides studio space to around 170 artists and makers across two studio sites in Sheffield city centre.

We aim to be a centre of excellence for the support of artists and makers, providing good quality, affordable studio space and delivering a professional development programme which offers exhibition opportunities, training and subsidised Starter Studios.

Established in 1977 by art graduates, Yorkshire Artspace was one of the first studio groups developed outside of London, where the studio movement began in the late 1960’s. Since then we’ve grown to become one of the largest and most established studio providers in the UK.

Our Organisation

Yorkshire Artspace is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee, run by a team of seven members of staff and governed by a Board of six Directors.

The Society is a membership organisation and is owned by its members.
