Wasps Studios has three amazing live/work spaces available across Scotland in both vibrant and picturesque rural areas.
In the east of the country we have The Steeple which is an award-winning arts facility in Newburgh, a picturesque town in north east Fife, Scotland. Newburgh is home to a vibrant arts community who provide a warm welcome for visiting artists. Four visiting artists have loved it so much they have moved to the town permanently! The Steeple incorporates 6 artists studios, a project space, and residential accommodation.
In the idyllic and remote Shetland Islands we have The Booth. It was built on the site of an old fisherman's store which was the oldest building in the town and was converted into a live-work space for visiting artists. Bookings here are for one month periods and are open to artists of all disciplines.
Our newest live/work space is the beautiful Admiral's House on the Isle of Skye. Recently extensively renovated, it has three creative studios, three bedrooms, and large communal space. The Admiral's House is an ideal creative space for various disciplines ranging from visual artists to musicians.
Please see our website for further details including images of all locations.
