Artsite3 is a not for profit unit of studios with a diverse community of professional artists and designers located in central Hereford. Spaces start at £40 per month, a variety of single and shared studios are available with onsite access to kilns.
Founded in 2008 by a co-operative of artists, designers and crafts people who pooled their resources to gain affordable studio space, Artsite3 has gone on to support many artists and designers at differing stages of their careers. Housing creatives working in a range of specialisms including illustration, textile design, ceramics, fine art, mixed media and print making, the studio has evolved to become a sought after working environment.
Artsite3 maintains close links with Hereford College of Art & Design, offering a yearly award to a graduate of the college comprised of a free studio space for a year. Awarded on commitment and passion for their practice, the prize provides the graduate with the opportunity to develop their professional career alongside a community of artists and designers. To date, the majority of winners have gone on to take up permanent spaces within Artsite3.
