Set to open in late Febuary 2021, SET Woolwich will host 250+ artist workspaces as well as a free studio prize for 15 selected artists, collectives or projects, a dedicated video exhibition programme and free space for selected charities and community groups.

Studios will be priced at £0.9 per sq ft per calendar month all-inclusive, the most affordable London has to offer, and will range from 200 sq ft spaces for £180 per month to whole floors totalling 5,000 sq ft.


Space will be open plan, with partitioning walls to the left and right of each space, some fully enclosed, and each with lots of natural light.

The space can host a wide variety of practises. There will be a floor designated to music making and another designed as workshop space for power tools and machinery. More information regarding these spaces will be released in the coming weeks.

SET Woolwich will house a dedicated video programme in the unique ground floor entrance hall. We will also house a project space designated to the Members Programme for exhibitions by studio holders alongside bookable space for private projects such as filming or photgraphing work.

Viewings will take place on Wednesday 24th and Thursday 25th of February. Full viewing details and how to apply will be announced mid February.
