Great space had everything we needed. Everything looks clean and new

Consistently one of the easiest places to deal with. Great space, good technology set-up, clean bathrooms, and it even has AC - I know it doesn't sound like a big deal, but it's a godsend for large spaces in the summer.

We loved this space and instructions for use of space was easy to follow. Thank you Cindy!


April 2019

As always, a great space to hold our events!

Wonderful sun-lit community space where I had a weeklong art exhibition and was able to use the kitchen for my opening reception, which was a great help. The space was really easy to use (hanging system, back loading area, SONOS music, security panel) and I was able to gallery sit for the duration. Grateful to be able to store some of my bigger packing supplies in their studio area. Cindy was a good help, considering that I booked with and was liaising with a different colleague until a few weeks before my booking. Appreciate the check ins from her and other colleagues during my time there, and chats with artists in the collective who work in the studio. Great value and experience and I’d definitely book again!

This was a great space for my brother's birthday party, and for a really good price. The facilities are clean and kept in good condition.

This was the perfect space for our son’s first birthday. We used the gallery for food and drinks, and the kids had plenty of space to play in the studio. Cindy was great and easy to communicate with. The instructions provided were clear and easy to follow. I would highly recommend this space.

The space was really wonderful and we loved using it! We will be back!

What an absolutely fantastic space. I led a creative branding workshop and everything was better than I even thought it would be. The spaciousness, amenities, folding tables with wheels, kitchen, bathrooms, gallery space for yoga breaks, Sonos music system, easy load-in of supplies and the incredible energy of the space really elevated my event and took it to the next level. Thanks so much for offering this gem to the public. I will definitely be back again and again!
