The Nottingham Workshop

We are now officially open come and say "Hi" we are here.

The Nottingham Workshop™ is a concept that has finally come to be a reality after years of thinking, debating, learning, studying and investigation.

A place where creativity, architecture, art, creative ecology, science & technology, business and physically making a range of contemporary work can come together. It is not just another pretty building or a scruffy studio but a catalyst where creative ecology happens.

At the moment we are a non-profitable private venture and have created a space where we borrow ideas from the manufacturing industry, stripped out all the "hard and mean" business and created an enviroment that is safe and relaxed where office work and design can happen as well as large scale art fabrication.

We are working on the basis of PAYG rental space in the workshop and slightly longer term for office space. 450sq.m of workshop space, offices, function room and meeting space are all available to be used by all creative residents.

Public art installations, artists, film makers, photographers, designers of all kinds, have you ever had a project but not enough space and money to make it happen? In The Workshop™ you can do all these things and we can work with you so you can get the correct amount of space you require.




Individuals, companies and organisations can book the spaces for events, presentations, exercise workshops, teaching, meetings, exhibitions or just for a short term if extra space is needed to make a “creative mesh”.
Creatives that wish to experiment further with business and creative work ideas.

Design, create, make, or just visiting Nottingham to do some work

or test the creative waters of the region.


We will look every project and case individually, just contact us for a chat.


Lets make design work, lets make things happen and help ourselves and the economy thrive.

Open to any serious art projects, design projects proposals to do business. Whatever we do it has to value our time make sure The Workshop is sustainable all parties are paid fairly and there is always a social element that helps building up to a fairer life, even if the project or business activities is not directly a social project.

We also have an online shop so anyone that is part of The Workshop can place their work for sale if they wish. Just ask us how this works.


From Freedom Came Elegance
A person with Ubuntu is open and available to others, affirming of others, does not feel threatened that others are able and good, for he or she has a proper self-assurance that comes from knowing that he or she belongs in a greater whole and is diminished when others are humiliated or diminished, when others are tortured or oppressed. ”

Imagination...... Design...... New Ideas..... Creativity...... Making......

That is what the Nottingham Workshop is all about.
