About West Studios

As Chesterfields newest Arts Centre, West Studios aims to provide a creative space for the creative community offering an inspiring and contemporary atmosphere within Chesterfields old boys Grammar School on Sheffield Road.

Through regular workshops, creative groups, exhibitions and events, we aim to help establish and grow the creative sector within the local community. With a fully equipped meeting room and flexible ‘Drop In Studio’, West Studios offers competitive room hire options to businesses and community groups. Our large, informal reception area allows visitors to relax with freshly brewed coffee from the Northern Tea Merchants and browse the handmade Gallery shop full of high quality, unique gifts and cards from local artists.

Previously founded through ERDF funding to provide business support to artists and creative business, we have continued to do this offering shared studio space to 17 creative businesses. Throughout our second year of business, we plan to expand our already well connected creative community by establishing the West Studios Membership, enabling them access to the facilities required to further develop their practice.
