Friendly bright space sharing with a designer/maker, situated on the Ground Floor. Furnished with desk, comfy chair, shelves, broadband, and window facing.
All desk-based creative or admin welcome, though best suited to those who can cope with a little background noise or who prefers working evenings. I go from sewing costumes to writing applications and running online workshops. Looking for someone respectful with similar eco values to share my studio. No smelly work please (oil painting, etc)

Available about mid August – flexible date.
Please contact me for more information and viewing and share with your colleagues.
I am looking to share my studio from now until the end of the year. It is a three window studio, lots of natural light and uncluttered.
I am a musician and mainly use the studio for teaching and practising. Sharing with another musician, or similarly small scale music making would work well, but I’d be happy to talk to other artists who need a space to work in for a time too. I am interested in drawing, photography and video work as well, so get in touch if you are interested to have a look at the space.
Rent would be £115 a month, including all of the perks of being in the Palette – please contact me at email@example.com to find out more.
