See below for additional photos of the space and prices; weekly rate for exhibitions is £650 – subject to submitting a proposal.


Workshop/Library Space:

A more intimate space, this room is ideal for creative workshops, meetings, rehearsals and AGMs.

The space includes a sink and worktop area along one wall, making it ideal for art and craft workshops or serving teas and coffees. The sink has a built-in cover, meaning it can also be hidden away if your event does not require it. There is also access to SAW’s kitchen through a hatch.
