Yorkshire Artspace provides studio space to over 170 artists and makers across three studio sites in Sheffield. We aim to be a centre of excellence for the support of artists and makers, providing good quality, affordable studio space and delivering a programme which offers exhibition opportunities, training and Starter Studios.
In 2002 we established The Starter Studio Programme for Silversmiths & Jewellers. Delivered from a fully equipped silversmith workshop drawing on the skills and expertise that exist in the city and indeed in our studios to provide mentor and skill support.
