Other Creative Spaces In Sheffield

There are various spaces available for let in Sheffield.  I have looked at a few of them to maybe give me some inspiration for an idea for mine or a theme I could base my designs around. 

S1 Artspace was established 15 years ago as the main artist-led organisation in Sheffield and is now a marked leader in the contemporary art scene of the city. It has offered studio spaces to artists and has remained consciously outward looking through its public exhibitions, screenings, discussions and by operating in broad support of artistic development.

Bloc Studios is an artists led studio complex comprised of 56 spaces and the Bloc Projects Gallery. Its mission is to create a creative and stimulating environment for fine artists to work in. Its location in the heart of Sheffield city centre makes it close to the local amenities, both railway and bus stations, and the local galleries. Bloc provides: 

  • 24 hour access
  • Free parking
  • Central heating
  • Free WiFi access
  • Affordable, secure, self contained spaces with good natural light
  • Outside working areas
  • Recycling facilities and communal recycled wood shed
  • Kitchen and communal areas
  • Shared communal garden space
  • No additional service charges

Having researched on the internet, there are more creative spaces in Sheffield than I originally thought, here are a few more companies and projects etc below:

Electric Works is a unique, contemporary office space for creative, digital and media businesses.  It provides a friendly yet professional environment for fast growing companies (4-15 people), larger businesses (of up to 60 employees) as well as some of the best specified facilities in the UK for freelancers and sole traders.
With state of the art IT and plug-and-play offices, the building provides a fantastic step-up for ambitious businesses who want to expand their horizons. Electric Works was recently dubbed the UK's only 'Helter Skelter Office' following the launch event in March 2009 which attracted a national and international profile for Sheffield including prime time news slots on Sky News, CBS and Channel 5.  Electric Works is just two minutes walk from the mainline train station and less than five minutes walk from the centre of one of the UK's largest and friendliest cities.
