Background Wimbledon Art Studios are based just off of Garratt Lane, behind Wimbledon Greyhound Stadium between Earlsfield and Tooting. We are the largest, single site art studio complex in London and Britain and we have helped to bring regeneration to an otherwise neglected part of the borough of Wandsworth, SW London. Established in 1993 within a working paper warehouse the studios opened with 6 artists renting spaces alongside the paper business. Now, the original warehouse consists of over 100 studio spaces with another 60 studio spaces in a newly, purpose built ‘Blue Studios’ building, on the same site. We currently have over 200 artist tenants. Art Studios have traditionally been established in rundown buildings awaiting either demolition or redevelopment with landlords exploiting this temporary opportunity to offer artists a work space for a few months or in luckier cases, a year or so. Wimbledon Art Studios’ alternative philosophy is to help artisans towards becoming independent through ongoing career development in a stable & encouraging environment. Many of the artists at the studios tend to stay long term and have the opportunity to become a part of a ‘community’, in what otherwise could easily be a very isolating career. The twice yearly Open Studio Art Shows are the only time that the doors are open to the public and it is only then that you get some sense of the scale of the place. Wimbledon Art Studios is now a well respected and vibrant hub of contemporary art with artists ranging from the emerging to the well established. The artists produce work across almost every discipline including painting, ceramics, weaving, photography, furniture making, textile design & sculpture, with a high percentage of them working professionally, full time. Many of the emerging artists juggle their studio time around full or part-time jobs and often work late nights or weekends to pursue their interests. Therefore the Studios provide 24 hour access, full security and free parking on site. General Information Wimbledon Art Studios, London comprises of two separate buildings known as the Red and Blue Studios on a single site in Riverside Yard, Riverside Road, Earlsfield, London SW17. The Red Studios are part of the first and second floors of a 15,000sq ft/ 4572 Sq Mt warehouse which has been altered specifically to accommodate over a hundred studio spaces of various shapes and sizes. However as of the 1st November 2011 an additional 55 brand new studios will open in a reclaimed section of the warehouse, therefore increasing the number of studios in the Red Studio building to 155. Large sky light windows, which run the entire length of the warehouse roof, provide a constant source of reliable natural light throughout the day while 13 of the brand new studios have an entire wall of natural light! This is achieved by replacing the previous brick façade with high tech, opaque, polycarbonate, allowing maximum light as well as privacy. The Blue studios are purpose built, state of the art studios that were opened in 2007. They offer the very best in creative space. Both studios are managed by an office of dedicated staff based in the Holman & Williams Packaging Reception on the ground floor of the Warehouse/Red Studios.

All pieces are hand-built, making each one unique.

My choice of clay is stoneware as this allows pieces to live inside or in the garden.

I obtained a City & Guilds in ceramics in 1998 and have been practicing ever since. http://jillsutcliffe4.carbonmade.com/ Arabella Stewart http://www.arabellastewart.co.uk

Limited Edition Prints
Commercial Projects Whilst I have the greatest respect for the nature in its unadulterated form it is the impact that man has both on the natural landscape and the material world that most fascinates me. Humans are a profligate species and the evidence of this surrounds us in our everyday world. However with our wastefulness come intrigue, inspiration, excitement and very often beauty. My aim is to capture the spirit that exists in the lost, the forgotten, the momentary and the disposable. I want my images to have a quality, a texture and depth that champion the provenance of these abandoned personalities. Jayson Lilley http://www.jaysonlilley.com/
