We’ve taken some of the best bits of Mother Studios London and built on that with these new studios. We hope there will be approximately 35 studios in the end, a wonderful art community cafe, a flexible gallery space and 2 education & project rooms!


The new studios in Ardleigh, are just outside of Colchester. We’ve opened the first studios in October and we are currently coverting this Victorian malt brewing warehouse for the next phase.


The gallery space and education & project rooms can be booked out by any of the artists at Mother Studios Essex for free. It’s important that we support the artist and their development.


There’s a lovely gated courtyard in the middle of the buildings, where table & chairs can be put out to relax on a nice day!
There’s plenty of parking and 24hr access.
The studios all have beautiful natural light and are individual lockable spaces.
