Making Art


All studio spaces benefit from good natural light with the costs of studio membership including electricity, water, building insurance and service charges. Access to WiFi and a covered outdoor working area is also available.

Besides paying rent, Studio Members contribute at least 5 hours per month in support of Lewisham Arthouse. This subsidises our Learning, Exhibition and Events programmes, and keeps them affordable and engaged.  Roles are hands-on, including curating, fundraising, marketing and building maintenance. It’s a great way to gain professional skills and experience and gain valuable experience of working within an active and friendly community organisation.

Studio membership is allocated according to artistic consistency, a demonstrable commitment to exhibition-making and self-promotion and a commitment to be present in Lewisham Arthouse for a minimum amount of time each month.

If you’d like to be a studio member, please join our mailing list to get updates on studio vacancies and details on how to apply.

Graduate Studio Award Scheme

Since 2010, the Graduate Studio Award Scheme has cultivated quality, innovation and talent development. This scheme supports artists at a precarious moment in their career. Lewisham Arthouse provides a free studio and peer mentoring to a London-based graduate. Residencies vary from 6 – 12 months and culminate in public presentations in the Project Space.

Kate Fahey 2017

Lewisham Arthouse is delighted to welcome our new Graduate Resident, Kate Fahey, who joins us from 1st June 2017 – 31st January 2018. Kate Fahey is an artist working with print and installation. She received a BA in Fine Art Printmaking from Gray’s School of Art, Aberdeen and an MA in Fine Art Printmaking at the Royal College of Art, London.

‘With machine vision, technological acceleration and the increasing pace of life, time seems to flow ever faster, making our relationships to images and the land fluid and problematic. At the core of my practice lies a concern for the surface and skin of the image through which I attempt to channel affect and a more embodied type of visuality, positing the surface as a site of mediation, transfer and transformation. Through the haptic nature of the work, I examine humans’ relationship with the digital and seek to connect with and to slow down our experience of images, calling on lost lore and old forms of knowledge to negotiate technology and scientific advancement.’
