Established in 2014 as creative project of Chesterfield College, West Studios works closely with the local creative community to support local creative businesses, makers, independant artists and students of Chesterfield College in the creative and digital areas.



We offer local artists, silversmiths, sculptors, fashion designers, performance artists, illustrators and graphic designers the opportunity to run and operate their business from spacious workshops a little closer to home. Find out more about our current tenants.

We run two creative events each year, one in the summer and one during the Christmas period. These events usually take the form of Markets or workshop-based activities and help small businesses connect with members of the public.

Gallery and Exhibitions

We also run a gallery, shop and refreshments area onsite at our studios. We invite you to come along to our exhibitions which showcase the work of talented artists from the local community; you can even choose to purchase a selection of their work in our shop.

West Studios has enabled our business to flourish. It’s a wonderful setting in which to work and provides ample support for when you are starting out.
